Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.8 x 4.8 cm
Soklich Open Cut, Yinnietharra Station, Pilbara Region, Western Australia, Australia
This is a giant crystal of dravite tourmaline, of the dark coffee color characteristic of this species, from Western Australia. It is very sharp and complete, and on one side that appears to have once been a contact, two subcrystals have grown out of it. Likely the large crystal came loose in the pocket, allowing for the original contact faces to heal and these to grow.
