Tourmaline (Var: Rubellite), Schorl
Momeik, Mogok, Sagaing District, Mandalay Division, Burma (Myanmar)
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.0 x 3.9 cm
A gorgeous, robust, intense red rubellite cap around a schorl stalk makes this a very fine example of this rare habit from Mogok. I traded for it at the Munich 2009 show. The color is superb for the material. A most unusual tourmaline style.
