Bright green to blueish glassy luster tourmaline crystal in excellent condition. Nearly all gem grade, this weighs 6.5 Grams, and has only a few minor internal veils. Excellent example of this style from the great Pederneira Mine, there are no chips or flaws on the entire prism or termination, althouh this is inclomplete on the bottom end where it came from the matrix.

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.
Elbaite -Bi-color gem crystal
stock #18.1-339
Baoshan Prefecture
Yunnan, China
1.2 x .9 x .6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $120
Dec 2018

A small but very clear perfect Tourmaline with a dark termination. We see very few good Chinese gem Elbaite and few of those with this color. In fine condition the matrix is another Elbaite crystal that is contacted with a little feldspar, but is also undamaged. Tghis is also a dichroic crystal so the color can shift from a more yellow to more green hue. A nice thumbnail from an unusual locale.
Elbaite with Quartz -Classic USA
stock #7AE-317
Dunton Quarry, Newry, Oxford County
Maine, United States
2.1 x 2 x 1.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $440
Dec 2018

Super thumbnail of gem Tourmailne with the steep termination from the world famed Dunton pocket at Newry. A classic US Elbaite with sharp form, bright luster and 100 percent gemmy clear. A small Quartz crystal adds a nice accent, the crystal is also dichroic and damage free. One of the most significant tourmaline discoveries of all time, the Dunton Quarry pocket is legendary. The steep terminations on some green crystals like this were unusually distinctive. These have become quite scare in this quality.

Minas Gerais, Brazil
3 x .7 x .3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $130
Late Summer 2018

Glass-clear gem crystal with perfect form and fine color. From older finds at the great Pederneira mine, this shows a slight color zoning and a bit deeper color near the termination. No damage. This is 100 percent facet grade gem and a choice crystal specimen.

price: $130

A cute Tourmaline thumbnail ex Larry White collection that has a very unusual color and becomes colorless when rotated in polarized light. This is undamaged and very transparent (the photos do not show the transparency well). A nice, glassy little gem crystal that is very unusual for the locale.
Elbaite- large dichroic crystal
stock #8 AE-686
Mulane Pegmatite, Alto Ligonha District
Zambezia Province, Mozambique
6.4 x 2 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $975
Worldwide mix summer

Gemmy and with a glassy luster, this single crystal has a dramatic color change and shows striking dichroic shift. The color change ranges from a purple-red to a yellow green. Aside from that, this is in fine condition, well terminated and a very different style of tourmaline from what is usually seen. Far better in person the color shift is one of the strongest I have seen.
