Tourmaline (Elbaite- Liddicoatite series)
Nujiang Valley (Gaoligong Mountains/ Gaoligongshan), Nujiang
Yunnan Province, China
4.4 x 3 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $80


From a find about 12 years ago in Yunnan Province, China. Pink Tourmalines with redder caps that came from the pegmatites of Gaoligong Shan is what seems to have been a mix of Elbaite and Liddiacoatite perhaps in zones. This piece shows the typical morphology of the find and has a nice bubble-gum color. The outer edges have contacts and chipping but there are several complete terminated crystals with no damage, the largest being 1 cm tall.
