ID: CC21316
A beautiful 2.8 cm tall Elbaite Tourmaline crystal from a new gem pocket found in the Coronel Murta district of Minas Gerais in Brazil.  The prism grades from a translucent mix of rich cerise and bubble gum pink throughout the lower half then becomes much more gemmy as the termination is approached.  An almost colourless 5 mm tall zone completes the crystal prior to the 1 to 2 mm deep hot cerise-magenta cap.  The crystal has a curved triangular cross-section; flat pinacoid termination and a fabulous bright glassy lustre.  When back-lit it appears very gemmy overall.  No repairs have been made to this specimen and it is displayed nicely on a small colourless acrylic base.
