Tourmaline (Var: Rubellite), Quartz
Mogok, Sagaing District, Mandalay Division, Burma (Myanmar)
Small Cabinet, 7.9 x 7.1 x 5.5 cm
Three "mushroom" tourmalines together, on a matrix of quartz crystals. They are almost always seen as singles, without matrix. The tourmalines are up to 3 cm across the top, slightly translucent, with deep pink to purple color. Found in the late 1990s, this was always a rare style.
