Tourmaline, Rubellite in Quartz
This specimen hosts numerous elongated magenta-colored Rubellite Tourmaline crystals on a nicely contrasting matrix of milky Quartz. Well formed crystals, nice striations, and shows well from all sides. Most of this stock is pretty underwhelming, but this piece stands well above the crowd.
Location: Minas Gerais, Brazil
