Elbaite -Rubellite gem crystal
stock #19.1-332
Cruzeiro Mine, Sao Jose de Safira
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.5 x 1 x .7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $800


100 percent gem grade Rubellite, mostly a fine cranberry red color with a lightly yellow zoning at the termination. An older Cruzeiro (Brazil) crystal the color is unusually intense for this locality, this looks similar to some Santa Rosa and Jonas mine crystals yet has a sightly different hue. In excellent condition as seen, with even a little backlighting this glows like red glass. The inside is very clean, this is all facet grade that has avoided the cutting wheel. Choice and better in person. Ex John Buckley collection we think this is a 1970 era piece.
Elbaite on and in tabular Quartz
stock #16.1-563
Cruzeiro Mine, Sao Jose de Safira
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.3 x 2.6 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $340
Dec 2018

A dark green to bluish pair of Elbaite crystals are laying on the flat face face of this tabular Quartz crystal. Very unusual and presenting an unique esthetic. The Tourmalines look nearly black in some light but with strong backlight the color and translucence is more distinct. The larger Tourmaline is contacted on one end but well terminated on the other, the smaller is doubly terminated. Aside from minor edge chipping the specimen is in fine shape. The Quartz is especially clear, completely transparent, doubly terminated and very glassy. Best appreciated in person.
Tourmaline (elbaite) Bi-colored

Cruzeiro Mine, Sao Jose de Safira

3.5 x 2.1 CM (miniature)

A translucent bi color crystal with full undamaged termination and good color. A nice example of a Cruziero from sometime in the mid 80's. Attractive.
