Elbaite -Blue capped crystals
Mina Camilo Gigante, Itinga
2.9 x 1.5 x 1.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
Excellent quality, zoned gem Tourmalines with distinct blue caps. Both crystals are terminated, the larger with a simple flat top and the smaller with a more complex habit. By naked eye there is no damage seen but a 20X magnification does find micro chipping on a few edges, still about as close to perfect as can be found. From finds about 6 years ago. A good value for a nice, small but clean gem.
