MQA12 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite
Sahatany Pegmatite Field, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
3.2x 2.0x 1.7 cm
$360

Another spray of tourmaline from a recent find in the Sahatany Valley.  The form on this piece is not quite as good as MQA11, but it makes up for it with its deeper pink color.  A number of the small terminations are sheared (see the close-up image) but overall it is exactly as shown.

Interesting new material from a locality that is primarily known for producing prismatic crystals.
