Item Description

A showy cluster of doubly-terminated indicolite tourmalines with a bed of lavender lepidolite crystals from recent finds at the famous Pederneira Mine. The gemmy and lustrous, well-striated crystals have beautiful teal-blue bodies and the pyramidal termination is light olive-green. The two adjacent crystals have broken terminations. The basal termination is broken, healed and is overgrown with some lepidolites. Contacting on one side, near the base, with no damage, per se, is noted, and is a very modest detraction. The gemminess, color and specimen form make this a highly representative and excellent example of the speces and noted locale. 18 grams.
