Tourmaline (651)


Cruzeiro mine, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil


5,3 x 1,5 x 1,4 cm


The crystal is end pointed and sharp terminated, all faces all around are highly lustrous. The crystal shows excellent clarity and high transparency. In the center you can see a dark pink phantom, the outer zone is light blue, below the end point you can see a sharp, thin more green zoning. A smaller crystal (also end pointed and lustrous) is intergrown in the middle. Minor roughness along some edges, but overall in very fine condition. The first photo in the galery shows the specimen without any backlight on light background, the second image shows the crystal on dark background with minor backlight.
