Elbaite Tourmaline
near Coronel Murta, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Thumbnail, 3.2 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm
This is the best thumbnail-sized specimen recovered from this single small pocket in January 2020, with unusually discrete colors: magenta, green, yellow, and pink. It is also one of the gemmiest of the pocket, transparent throughout its whole length. A stunning crystal, quite different than others you may have seen from this region. 10.5 grams.
