Apatite, Tourmaline, Albite
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.3 x 3.0 cm
Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
A MOST UNUSUAL and SHOWY Brazilian specimen of a sharp, lustrous, 1.6 cm, purple apatite crystal nicely perched on white albite AND a bi-colored, terminated tourmaline crystal. The undamaged, matte-finish, green termination of the tourmaline, which is adjacent to the apatite crystal, grades downward into a nice lilac or lavender color. The side faces of the tourmaline are contacted. This is a fine combination piece and the trivial edge bruise on the apatite is barely noticeable. 4.5 x 3.3 x 3.0 cm
