ID: CC20744
A lovely combination of Elbaite Tourmaline and Quartz from the world-famous Pederneira mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Tourmaline prism is mounted directly to a square acrylic base, standing just slightly off-vertical and measuring 3.7 cm tall. It is triangular in cross-section with each face about 1.2 cm wide. The Elbaite is a rich and dark leaf green although a 1.1 cm sliver of bubble-gum pink Elbaite is included within the crystal’s apex. The apex is complex and appears to represent a partly terminated prism which has later been tectonically damaged and then partly re-healed.
