Tourmaline Var Indicolite

ID: CC1680

A catchy Tourmaline from the Jos Plateau, of the variety Indicolite - transparent blue becoming sea green at the base, and with a milky blue cap. The crystal has a vitreous lustre, striated along the length with a modified pyramidal termination. As some of the striations are deeper than others it almost has a star shaped cross section. A tiny Quartz crystal is intergrown at the termination.
