- Tourmaline var. Elbaite
- Miniature, 3.7 x 2.0 x 1.6 cm
- Barra de Salinas, Minas Gerais, Brazil
From a new early 2015 find at the mine, this bicolored elbaite crystal is dramatically sceptered with a bright green terminal cap which grades down to a rose pink color. The crystal is glassy and gemmy, and very colorful and bright! I was told, and remain convinced, that this is one of the more robust, fine examples from the small pocket.
