MLID56 Tourmaline var. Liddicoatite on Quartz
Mt Ibity, Antsirabé 2 Dist., Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
3.5x 2.6x 1.6 cm
$165

Terminated green tourmaline crystals on matrix, from Madagascar. Matrix specimens are very hard to find from this locality, as the tourmaline crystals are found in a crumbly, highly decomposed pegmatite.  Virtually the only matrix examples found are tourmaline/ quartz associations-- this one is a bit odd both for being on matrix, and for being green.  Although common at most other tourmaline producing localities, it is one of the rarer ones from Madagascar.
