The Cruzeiro mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil is one of the world's most famous and revered localities for elbaite tourmaline. This is a superb tourmaline crystal group for the locale, with a gemmy, bright interior and exceptional color zoning, ranging from bottle-green to light blue to hot pink towards the terminations. The facet-quality clarity means it has significant gem rough value, but it's true value is in the aesthetic placement of a smaller "sidecar" crystal as well as the high luster and undamaged faces of both crystals. A choice Cruzeiro tourmaline that would be at home in any collection. Ex - Proctor Family Trust Collection.
