Otjua Mine, Karibib, Erongo Region, Namibia

Ex. Charlie Key

The Otjua Mine in Namibia is known for its polychrome Tourmaline, but finding crystals or even slices like this is difficult. This is a showy bicolor Elbaite Tourmaline slice displaying a raspberry red core with a medium green core area and has a great polish on both sides. The slice is 2mm thick. Beautiful!
