ID: CC21277
From a new gem pocket found in the Coronel Murta district of Minas Gerais, Brazil, a charming miniature of bubble gum to coral-pink translucent flattened Elbaite Tourmaline crystals sprinkled with translucent milky-white Quartz crystals.  The Elbaite, which measures 6.5 cm long, is primarily a highly flattened cluster of translucent crystals with terminations varying from Roman sword points to flat pinacoids.  Occasional tips become a deeper and glassy gemmy pink.  The Elbaite is striated parallel to its length.  No repairs have been made to this specimen.  A delightful Elbaite with milky-Quartz.
