1-3/4" Bicolor Elbaite Tourmaline

In stock
Quick Overview

The color ranges from green to orange-yellow, and it has mountain-like terminations. This appears to be a self-healed crystal, meaning that the crystal sustained damage at one point in its growth, but continued to grow. This is a wonderful conversation piece and great investment for any collection. It has been glued to an acrylic base for easy display.

Location: Colonel Murta, Brazil

Measurements: ~1-3/4" tall x 1" wide, the base is 1-1/2" square and 5/8" tall
