Tourmaline on Quartz
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.3 x 1.9 cm
Barra de Salinas, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Growing out of a doubly terminated, translucent and colorless quartz crystal measuring 4.5 cm in length, is a glassy and gemmy, rich green elbaite crystal, 3 cm in length. There is an unusual cast or mold left by a bygone crystal, in the quartz to the side. Dramatic miniature, from a great locale! 2015 find. This is not just "gemmy," but it is GEM transparent with cutting quality tourmaline rough!
