Tourmaline var. Uvite with Magnesite and Quartz from Brumado, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil [db_pics/pics/tourm7a.jpg] Tourmaline var.

TOURM7 - Tourmaline var. Uvite with Magnesite and Quartz
$ 195.00
Brumado, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil
miniature - 4.2 x 3 x 2 cms

This Uvite has a deep green color, and is pleasantly "stacked," vertically. It has a sprinkling of Magnesite and Quartz crystals, making it a desirable specimen from Brumado. This piece originated through Hawthorneden, back when they were readily being found. Since then, the supply of good Uvites has dried up. Pic #3 is the back side of the specimen, also attractive and with a small area missing a crystal (not too eye catching and it's on the back!).

TOURM29 - Tourmaline Var. Elbaite
$ 295.00
Kunar Province, Afganistan
small cabinet - 5.1 x 1 x 1 cm

This is an old piece I acquired directly from Dr. Steve Smale, the renowned mathematician and mineral collector around 2008. It is a beautiful gem green color and with remarkable clarity. It involves three crystals are tightly crystallized together. It weighs 7.9 grams.  It's in fine condition with only a micro ding on one of the lower crystals. Overall a beautiful tourmaline.
