Tourmaline (Var: Indicolite)
Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 2.8 x 2.7 cm
A big, fat, DOUBLY-TERMINATED floater crystal of indicolite tourmaline - an old-timer from Brazil with a Wards label! When under strong light, this dark teal-colored crystal shows an intense, super-gemmy mid-section between the two dark terminations. This brilliant teal gem section is a band about 1.5 cm in width. This is a real fatty, weighing in at 83 grams.
