Elbaite Var Rubellite with blue-green center stripe
stock #16.1-560
Coronel Murta, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
1.9 x .7 x .7 (thumbnail)
price: $380
Winter 2016-17

A super and unusual thumbnail gem crystal with a clear red Rubellite exterior that lets the green-blue inner core be seen like a racing stripe. Choice and better in person, there is a tiny bit of adhering matrix and one small clean contact with no damage. This crystal is also dichroic with a good color shift seen when rotated in front of a light source like a computer screen. Small but with a good display impact far larger than the size!
