An elegant 5.5 cm tall Elbaite Tourmaline from Coronel Murta in Minas Gerais, Brazil, mounted vertically on a bevelled clear acrylic base.  The lower 4 cm grades from electric lime-green to sea-green, then mustardy-green, and finally zingy lime-green.  The final 1.5 cm varies from pink-tinted colourless Elbaite to floury, whitish bubble gum-pink and terminating creamy-golden-lemon!  The entire crystal is semi-transparent and filled with crystalline reflecting planes and wispy black inclusions.  The termination divides into four distinct separated  crystals, each with its own pyramidal asymmetric faces.  A delightful ex-matrix Elbaite Tourmaline from Coronel Murta.
