Elbaite - conjoined dichroic gem crystals
Coronel Murta, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.2 x 2.6 x 1. CM (thumbnail)
price: $250


A pair of terminated transparent Tourmalines from vintage 1980 finds at Coronel Murta (Minas Gerais, Brazil). This Elbaite is also quite dichroic and best appreciated when rotated in front of a polarized light like a computer screen. The color ranges from almost colorless blue hue to a very dark green. In very good condition overall, this is nearly all facet grade clear and has fine well-developed striations. 17.5 grams and quite different from more recent Brazilian Tourmalines. This will fit at an angle in a perky box but not a 1 inch cube.
