M319 Tourmaline & Albite


This is a terrific example of Tourmaline with Albite specimen from Brazil.  It has dark green Tourmaline columnar prisms embedded and protruding from them with unmatched character contrasted by the white Albite.  The excellent piece measures 4″ x 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ tall and is unaltered from nature in any way.  A very nice specimen that makes a unique display item.

Tourmaline is one of the most chemically complicated of all Silicate minerals. It is a complex Silicate of Aluminum and Boron and the composition varies widely with Sodium, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Lithium and many other elements that enter into it’s structure. It can occur in a long, slender needle-like crystal to a thick prismatic and columnar crystal to a radial like daisy formation. It comes in many colors usually black and brown (iron rich); brown and yellow (magnesium rich); and blue, red, green, yellow, and pink (lithium rich). This mineral is found in igneous rocks, like Granite Pegmatite, and metamorphic rocks such as Schist and Marble.

Albite is a common feldspar mineral and a sodium aluminosilicate that occurs most widely in pegmatites and felsic igneous rock such as granite. It also may be found in low-grade metamorphic rocks. Albite usually forms brittle, glassy crystals that may be colorless, white, yellow, green pink or black.
