A strange combination specimen featuring a single stark green fluorite isolated on top of schorl crystals. This in itself is unusual. The larger crystals are schorl, and I am told (though havent analyzed), that the smaller tourmaline crystals, almost needlelike, are the related tourmaline species foitite
