This off-matrix, tall, slender, and elegant Elbaite Tourmaline crystal measures an impressive 8.1 cm and is transparent throughout, save for some cloudy patches towards its termination.  From Coronel Murta in Minas Gerais, Brazil, the first 6.5 cm of the prism is bright emerald-lime green shot through with wispy black hair-like filaments, all sitting at 90 degrees to the long axis.  The final 1.5 cm grades from green to clouded candy-salmon pink containing planar crystalline features which form multiple reflective surfaces.  The very tip is light golden syrup-lemon pervading the four-sided pyramidal termination.  The prism faces are deeply striated and have an excellent glassy lustre.  An outstanding Elbaite Tourmaline from Coronel Murta, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
