Mineral Specimen #5151    Pink Tourmaline and Stilbite

Himalaya Mine, San Diego County, California, USA

Here is a very unusual combination of mineral species. When I first got this specimen, I could not believe the combination of Stilbite with Tourmaline. I checked on mindat, and sure enough, there were a couple of other specimens posted. The Tourmaline on this specimen has a very rich, deep, pink color. This contrasts nicely with the brown Stilbite. The Tourmaline is a thin, wide crystal of an unusual habit. It is terminated at both ends.

Condition: Good

Flaws: There is one section of the Tourmaline which at first looked to be broken, but under closer examination, has both growth lines and small secondary crystals. This may be a rehealed break.
