A rare tourmaline group species - rare, lustrous, golden-brown and dark chocolate-brown buergerite crystals to 1.2 cm from the famous find in Mexico. A rich and rare example of this tourmaline varietal that was found in the 1960's, by a miner who brought the lot to Tucson for sale. In person, the crystals have a unique and characteristic golden sheen to them. Rarely available today. A very interesting, pristine plate with rich coverage.
