Mineral Specimen #57 Tourmaline (Elbaite), Albite, Lepidolite
Pederneira claim, Sao Jose da Safira, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A very showy Tourmaline matrix specimen. The largest crystal is gemmy with both a pretty pink color and a light green color. The green section of this crystal is edged with pink. The Albite blades (some would call this Clevelandite) are also gemmy. There are sparkly little Lepidolite crystals sprinkled on the Albite blades (hard to see in the photos).
