SVP07 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite
Mt Ibity, Antsirabé 2 Dist., Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
3.4x 3.4x 3.2 cm
A small but exquisitely zoned tourmaline crystal, standing upright on a nicely contrasting feldspar matrix. The crystal only measures about 1.6 cm, but the coloration and zoning are incredible! It is especially unusual to find pieces from this location on matrix, as the pegmatites are typically weathered and crumble away from the tourmalines. All in all, it's a beautiful little miniature.
