SOLD Elbaite (indicolite) with Lepidolite
Barra do Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4 x 1.5 x 1 CM (miniature)
price: $0


A cute single crystal of Indicolite Tourmaline studded with several clusters of Lepidolite. Under most lighting this is quite dark and looks almost black but with strong lighting the transparent blue is very evident. The termination is incomplete being contacted, the upper area is a more violet than blue. A nice example of 6.6 grams that is priced well below the market rate for gem Elbaite of this color.
