Elbaite Tourmaline with Albite
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.9 x 2.6 cm
Pederneira Mine, Sao Jose da Safira, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli
This matrix specimen came out of Brazil more than twenty-five years ago, and is classic for the Pederneira mine with its dark green termination on a chatoyant, gemmy green prism. The very lustrous Elbaite is 3.1 cm tall, and it contrasts nicely with the bladed, white Albite matrix. Very good aesthetics.
