In early 2020, a new find of euclase was discovered. They aren't the typical gemmy blue crystals we're used to; it's a fascinating new association of clear euclase with tourmaline (schorl) inclusions. We cannot say that we have seen this before! These pieces came from a single pocket brought out in early 2020 and we purchased them in Brazil in March 2020. We bought all the quality pieces, nearly the entire pocket, for this update. There is a cleave on the bottom left and a bit of roughness on the edges but this doubly-terminated crystal is the largest of the lot at 5.2 cm. It weighs in at 22.75 g. It's a sharp crystal and the contrast with the needle-like schorl inclusions is spectacular!
