MQA27 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite
Anjanabonoina , Ambohimanambola Commune, Betafo District, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
1.7x 1.6x 0.15 cm
$175

A very beautiful matched pair of liddicoatite slices from Anjanabonoina, the locality famous for producing the best sliceable liddicoatites.  These have the sought after "Mercedes sign" and good color.

Backed with a bit of silver, white enamel (or another lightly colored reflective material) they would make a stunning pair of earrings.

The slices are mounted in a perky box, hot glued to a bit of white card stock to better show their color.  I removed some of these sets from their backings to reposition them with no problem, but if you are feeling especially cautious a quick immersion in rubbing alcohol will loosen them nicely.  

Please note: the given dimensions are of one of the slices, the second will be very close but not exactly the same.
