Elbaite -Gem crystal, classic find
Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
2.7 x 1.4 x 1.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575
Spring 2017

A classic form from a now classic find. The steep termination of this Tourmaline and the blue green color is a textbook type for the Newry "big pocket". Nearly all gem grade, sharp and clear with a slight touch of color zoning. While huge amounts were found in this big strike close to 50 years ago, most was cut for gemstock. This large thumbnail has a few tiny crystals of Lepidolite on one edge. Some tiny rough areas as seen in the photos but for the locality this is in very fine condition.
