Elbaite -rare fibrous-zoned achroite, verdelite and indicolite crystal
stock #Alec-7-150-504
Aracuai, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.9 x 1.9 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $380
pre Tucson 2015 update

An very unusual older specimen from a find in the 1970's at Aracuai. The tourmaline crystal is both etched and prismatic with a large fibrous zone in the middle. The color zoning is unusual and includes the uncommon colorless (achroite) variety. Ex Larry White collection, this is an attractive oddity and very different from other finds of fibrous Tourmalines. In good but not perfect condition, there is contacting and chips but not badly noticable from some angles.
