MSR37 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite
Mt Ibity, Antsirabé 2 Dist., Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
A cluster of liddicoatite tourmaline crystals from a recent find near Mt. Ibity-- this is from the same find that produced the floater tourmaline/ smoky quartz combinatoins posted elsewhere on this page. These crystals display the exaggeratedly slanted terminations typical of Malagasy liddicoatite.
The smaller crystal is brownish green when backlit, but the larger one appears dark. Please note that there is a third crystal that is not terminated.
