Enhydro Water Bubble in Tourmaline, All Included in Quartz
Cabinet, 9.7 x 4.9 x 4.6 cm
Aracuai (Arassuai), Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This piece is ridiculous! It contains a TOURMALINE inside a quartz, cute but not a big deal. Well, WITHIN the tourmaline is a completely round, moving water bubble! I have NEVER heard of an enhydro tourmaline, and yet here we have a double inclusion as its within quarttz, to boot!? The quartz is polished to show it off better, and you can clearly see this tourmaline and the bubble, just sittign there. I am NOT usually one to go crazy over lapidary pieces or weird inclusions, but this is just ridiculous, as I said, and I have never heard of anything like it.
