The "rubellite" elbaite tourmaline crystals from the Malkhan District in central Russia are among the finest in the world, exhibiting rich cranberry-red color, large crystal size, and aesthetic associations. Major finds were made 2012 and up until ~2015, pockets containing superb tourmaline crystals were still being found at the Sosedka pegmatite and other mines. This specimen consists of a single large (17.5 cm) crystal with superb color and a pyramidal termination showing intense color saturation. An exceptional tourmaline for the locality, in fine condition and with great display aesthetics. Comes with a custom lucite base for display.
