ID: CC7902
Five highly lustrous, terminated, intergrown jet-black crystals of Schorl Tourmaline make for a showy specimen from the renowned occurrence at Woolley Farm near Bovey Tracy in Devon, England.  These tourmalines were discovered by farm workers shortly after 1815, in a pegmatite pocket of the Dartmoor granite exposed while working a field.  The Schorl crystals are broad and stubby, measuring between 3 to 4.5 cm across, with mirror-smooth prism faces and spikey, feathered terminations.  The underneath has a rich covering of etched colourless Quartz crystals to about 7 mm long.  A few 1 to 2 mm crystals of snow-white Fluorapatite are attached to the side of one Schorl crystal.  A very good example for this historic Devon locality.
