Superb trio of beautiful Tourmalines nestled in Cleaveladite - classic style from the late 1980s at this locality. The striated crystals have superior luster, very fine light-green gemmy tips, and sharp mirror-like terminations. While the Cleavelandite, as normal, has suffered a bit of minor wear, the Tourmalines are in remarkably good condition, with only one bit of wear well down the longest 5 cm crystal. Material like this hasn't come out since the 1980's, and you are not likely to see quality this good appearing very often. A terrific Tourmaline specimen at a fair price, I think.
