A thumbnail-sized Elbaite Tourmaline from Barra do Salinas in the Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil.  The stubby crystal has an acidic deep apple-green termination and grades to an almost colourless Achroite.  The core of the crystal is salmon-pink, only visible when it extends some 5 mm below the base of the upper crystal body, giving a sceptre-like appearance.
