Elbaite, Lepidolite, Albite
Aracuai (Arassuai), Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 4.2 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm
An excellent, very sculptural combination piece from the late 80's-early 90's. The Lepidolites and Albites are very well-formed, and the beautiful, gemmy, and lustrous Tourmaline is 1.6 cm long. The aesthetics of the way the Tourmaline nestles among the other minerals is terrific.
