Item #10113
$ 230
Elbaite (4.6 grams)
Ibadan, Nigeria

This 2.8 x 0.9 x 0.9 cm tourmaline from Nigeria weighs 4.6 grams. I picked out this one and few others from a large parcel of tourmaline being sold as cutting rough at the Denver show. The very glassy green body of the crystal is slightly bluish green while the top half of the crystal is a nice pink. The termination is not lustrous and shows some alluvial wear, but the sides of the crystal are very shiny. No damage. A nice piece for a elegant pendant or wire wrap!
