Tourmaline With Lepidolite, Cleavelandite
Pederneira Mine, Sao Jose da Safira, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.4 x 2.2 cm
An exquisite miniature tourmaline specimen from the Pederneira, with a pure gem, 2-cm "pencil" crystal shooting out from a cluster of smaller crystals- all TERMINATED! The only small matrix contact is underneath. Pretty association of bladed white cleavelandite and lavender lepidolite.
