Tourmaline (Elbaite/Liddicoatite) "mushroom form"
Luc Yen
Yen Bai Province, Vietnam
4.9 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $580


An early piece of well formed multi-color tourmaline from the now famous deposits at Luc Yen, Vietnam. Very sharp and with glassy luster, this is in superb condition with no visible damage to the crystal. Better in person and a little more gemmy than the photos show. This is quite likely a mix of Elbaite and Liddicoatite but has not been analyzed to determine this. Ex John Marshall collection, this is well above the quality of the vast majority of these Tourmalines, and a nice addition to any suite.
