Elbaite Tourmaline

ID: CC3755

Two excellent gemmy to translucent Elbaite crystals measuring to 7.3cm in a V-like configuration. The Elbaite Tourmaline is a pleasing green to yellow-green, and is characteristically striated parallel with the prism faces, with further smaller crystals grown off from the main crystals. Where the two Elbaite crystals start to diverge is seen a gemmy colourless group of Quartz crystals. A pleasing specimen from the pegmatite rich area of Minas Gerais, Brazil
