A major tourmaline specimen from the famous Cruzeiro mine in Minas Gerais Province, Brazil. This specimen features a large, gemmy, electric-blue to bright 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, with no repairs. These Cruzeiro tourmalines are regarded as some of the world's best and this crystal exemplifies why this is. An important tourmaline worthy of any collection. Ex. Gerhard Wagner collection, noted German collector of tourmaline. Tom Spann photo.
