A rather curious Tourmaline specimen where, on one side, the surface of the Tourmaline is fibrous and a light gray color with a hint of blue. On the opposite side, the Tourmaline is coarse and there are several, broken Quartz crystals. Both Dravite and Schorl are found at the location. It is likely both are present in a series on this specimen with the fibrous material being the Dravite and the black colored material the Schorl. There are also small, yellow orange colored Scheelite crystals present. These were found at the location but seldom available. The Scheelite fluoresce under SW but the color is not the typical blue/white for Scheelite from other locations but rather a bright yellow/white.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: None of the Quartz crystals are complete. The termination of the Tourmaline is not complete. Near the top of the specimen, there is a broken area revealing pitch black colored material under a few mm of the light gray material.
