This is what has made the Pederneira mine a world-class (and world famous) locality- unbelievably sculptural, aesthetic Elbaite Tourmaline specimens. This piece features a "tripod" of elongated vibrant green to red crystals which in turn support a bowtie-like spray of doubly-terminated crystals with minor lepidolite. The tourmaline crystals are firmly 'anchored' in quartz crystals and you could not ask for much better display aesthetics in a mineral specimen. This is a major tourmaline specimen for the advanced collector. Ex. Gerhard Wagner collection.
