Schorl Tourmaline

ID: CC945

A small cabinet specimen of Schorl from the classic Devonshire location of Woolley Farm. The Schorl is seen as well formed crystals to 4cm along the 'C' axis. The crystals of Schorl are typically black with the faces having a vitreous luster. Specimens from this rare occurrence were found originally sometime between 1810 and 1818, reputedly when a field was being ploughed. The Schorl and sometimes associated Apatite probably came from an unlocated pegmatitic body.
