Tourmaline Var. Rubellite
Jonas Mine, Itataia, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 5.9 x 3.9 cm
A bright and sparkly mass of lepidolite with Cleavelandite crystals growing within, from which emerges a very gemmy tourmaline of just under 1 cm. The tourmaline is gemmy and obviously displays well, but there is some damage to the right side, plus it is repaired because I fumbled it in my ahste to unpack these, hence the lower price. Still, it displays beautifully and remains a matrix Jonas!
