Toenail, 2.8 x 2.7 x 1.0 cm
Himalaya Mine, San Diego County, California, USA
Ex. Herb Obodda
While the Himalaya Mine is most noted for tourmalines, on occasion the mine has given up rarities like this incredibly sharp and textbook-crystallized, tabular columbite. The crystal is doubly terminated, has good luster and exhibits a dark battleship gray color. From the private collection of Herb Obodda, this is an important San Diego County specimen for the mine.
