||SOLD Tourmaline (elbaite)
Conselheiro Pena, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.5 x .9 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
A sharp and very well terminated crystal that a very subtle range of colors, it is light blue to clear but also has a few pink spots. It is quite pale and so needs good lighting to bring out the color. Despite the dull color, this is a nice, sizable, well formed, glassy and gemmy tourmaline that won't break the bank.
