A major tourmaline specimen from the famous Cruzeiro mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. This specimen features a large, gemmy, electric-blue to green elbaite tourmaline crystal placed perfectly on a "rosette" of albite crystals. The display aesthetics of this piece are ideal, and the large tourmaline crystal has superb color and gemminess for the locality. These Cruzeiro tourmalines are regarded as some of the world's best and this fine piece exemplifies why this is. An important specimen worthy of any collection. Ex. Gerhard Wagner, noted German collector of tourmaline.
