18MA28 Liddicoatite Tourmaline
Manapa pegmatite Field, Betafo District, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
6.6x 3.5x 3.6 cm
$450

An good tourmaline example from the Manapa pegmatite field.  Tourmalines from this area have distinctive purplish-red color, though are typically only seen as crystal sections frozen in matrix (often associated with rhodizite.) This piece has a rather hefty crystal that is also well terminated, in addition to a couple side crystals.  

On my previous trip I was able to get a several good examples of smaller crystals, this time I got a couple larger ones.
