Two Tourmaline crystals encased in white Albite crystals. Much of both crystals are a very dark color, nearly black. Approximately 3/4 of the way up the crystal, the color changes to an emerald green in a narrow band and then a light yellow green. The lighter areas are gemmy and have a high luster.
Condition: Fairly Good
Flaws: The terminations of the Tourmaline crystals are chipped, more so with the larger crystal.
