Tourmaline (Var: Indicolite), Lepidolite, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.1 x 1.8 cm
A simply gorgeous, aesthetic, gemmy, lustrous indicolite tourmaline with smaller protruding tourmalines, purple lepidolite crystals and a lustrous, white blade of cleavelandite. The darker pinacoid termination has low luster. The one barely noticeable termination edge ding has no effect on this beautiful specimen, which hails from an unidentified Minas Gerais, Brazil locality (though I suspect it is Golconda Mine or area) 4.1 x 3.1 x 1.8 cm
