Elbaite, Quartz (Var: Rose Quartz)
Miniature, 4.2 x 2.5 x 2.4 cm
Alto da Pitorra, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A very unusual combo specimen from Brazil! What you have is this weird, melty-looking rose quartz, on the side of a euhedral quartz crystal, that has wrapped itself around a crystal of dark green tourmaline! The tourmaline was able to be removed with one of its terminations intact. Unique!
