Elbaite Tourmaline With Quartz

ID: CC2932

A well formed central crystal of Quartz is associated with sharply terminated crystals of Elbaite Tourmaline, from one of Brazil's most famous gem mines, namely the Sapo Mine. Prismatic striated crystals of Elbaite measuring to 3cm tall terminated by a flat pinacoid are seen partly enclosed by the Quartz crystal. Crystals of Elbaite are lustrous and are colour zoned, with a pink body colour passing to green with a well defined inky blue cap. A great specimen from the mine.
