MQA30 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite
Mt Ibity, Antsirabé 2 Dist., Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
A cluster of polychrome liddicoatite crystals, on matrix. With backlighting, these show a deep reddish color.
There is damage to the piece and this is reflected in the price-- the position arrangement of the two main (and intact) crystals however makes it look considerably more impressive (and expensive) though, despite the damage.
