A rarely encountered specimen of Elbaite Tourmaline with Quartz crystals from China. Resembling in
color the green Elbaite from the Urubu Mine in Brazil, but composed of thinner groups of DOUBLE-TERMINATED
and quite CHATOYANT (Cat’s-Eye) crystals arranged into a graceful radiating spray that displays equally well either
vertically or horizontally. COMPLETE all the way around and in excellent condition. This remarkable specimen is
also a FLOATER, with all surfaces completely crystallized and no visible point of attachment. This unique Tourmaline specimen
exhibits brilliant luster, a rich green color, and a very graceful composition for display. From my personal collection.
