Schorl with Cleavelandite
Urucum Mine, Galileia
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.4 x 2.6 x 1.7 CM (thumbnail)
price: $80


A "candelabra" style specimen of slender Tourmalines in a pretty arrangement offset by well-crystallized Cleavelandite. This will fit in a thumbnail box (barely) and has very nice contrast. Originally labeled as an Elbaite, but on close study it is a Schorl. Ex Larry White collection he obtained it from the Brauns in 1975. I do not see many attractive Schorl of this sort and never in thumbnail size. While not a rare specie it is surprisingly rare to see in thumbnail collections.
