When any advanced collector thinks of tourmaline the specimens from the 1978 discovery at the Jonas mine are at the top of the list. The beautiful cranberry color contrasted on white cleavelandite makes these specimens pop in any display. Many are also associated with light lavender lepidolite which really sets of the cranberry tourmaline crystals.
This specimen has all three species in an aesthetically balanced specimen. The largest of the tourmaline crystals is 5.3 cm tall and is gemmy and lustrous, and doubly terminated too! Crossing the top of the main crystal is another doubly terminated crystal 3 cm long. There are eight main crystal juxtaposed amongst bladed flowers of cleavelandite. Neatly tucked here and there on the specimen are books of light lavender lepidolite, which accents the other species nicely.
All in all, this specimen would make a great addition to any collection!
