This is a special piece for any collector of inclusions or gem crystals... Translucent, green Elbaite Tourmaline crystals are included within a large gem Morganite Beryl crystal! Rarely do you see inclusions in a parent crystal that involve two beautiful gem minerals. The pale oink Morganite is totally transparent with veils of planar fluid inclusions and internal irregularities displaying incredibly lustrous and prism, pyramid and pinacoid faces. The two Elbaite tourmaline crystals are a medium green and striated with their striations visible through the Morganite crystal! One end of each Tourmaline crystal is terminated within the Morganite and the other ends exit the Morganite (and are incomplete as is the Morganite on the backside). A remarkable pegmatite combo piece!
