Elbaite Tourmaline on Quartz with Albite
An aesthetic and beautiful combination piece that has a large, colorless and lustrous Quartz crystal with a pristine Elbaite Tourmaline crystal rising up out of the Quartz, and a shroud of white Albite wrapped around the back of the Tourmaline, leaving the front and top exposed. The Elbaite Tourmaline crystal is green, lustrous, transparent and perfectly terminated. The contrast, luster and symmetry is outstanding – an amazing piece in excellent condition.
