MQA11 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite

3.6x 3.4x 2.2 cm
$600

A beautiful spray of fine tourmaline crystals from a recent find in the Sahatany valley.  I purchased a small group of this material, this was the best example from what I saw.  The others were mostly thumbnails, this was one of only 3 miniatures, and it has the best form by far.

These sprays are something of a novelty for the area-- on past trips I had seen plenty of the usual prismatic crystals, this was the first time I had seen sprays in any quantity.
