Item Description

A very unusual tourmaline specimen from the famous Cruzeiro Mine! This is a concave-convex, tapered fan of parallel-growth, gemmy and lustrous, olive-green tourmaline crystals! The tourmalines in the upper part of the fan are in a line in single-crystal growth with the smaller, sidecar crystals below! This amazing tourmaline specimen has only one broken crystal, which is a very minimal detraction. Unique in my experience of Cruzeiro tourmalines. Older material. 19 grams.
