ELBAITE, LEPIDOLITE – Brazil – GFS0220
Pederneira mine, São José da Safira, Minas Gerais, Brazil
7,5x7x4,5 cm. – Tourmaline 7,5 cm.
A fantastic multi crystallized gem of bi-colored green tourmaline associated with a cluster of pinkish Lepidolite; a delightful color change is observed in the tips, from green to light turquoise. Really a gorgeous piece from Brazil, which has produced some of the most iconic tourmaline specimens in the world; Tourmaline repaired, but we remember that this specimen come from the Safira pegmatite district and this aspect is certainly acceptable in the context of pegmatitic extractive area.
