DDM32 Tourmaline var. Elbaite
Mogok Township, Myanmar (Burma)
4.4x 2.7x 1.8 cm
A nice example of tourmaline from Burma. With the exception of those "mushroom" shaped liddicoatites, these Burmese examples are somewhat scarce. This one has a deep reddish-pink color and dark cap. There is some chipping near the base, as shown. This came from a small pocket found over the summer.
