Description/Interesting Notes: A very rare example of GEM cuprian elbaite tourmaline from Paraiba!!! This is a group of five individual crystals of gem cupri...an tourmaline!!! Each specimen shows some sharply defined crystal faces and complex etching with glassy luster!!! The largest crystal is a nearly complete floater with complexly etched faces and gem clarity throughout!!! The largest crystal exhibits a unique green color with the top "spire" grading to a more bluish color (more visible at certain angles) - although the crystal is not the characteristic blue color, it is indeed cuprian tourmaline and certainly has a unique and very attractive green to blue green color!!! The smaller crystals an intense, lively blue green color that is quite striking in person!!! Although the crystals aren't all complete, they all display quite handsomely in person and are fine examples of this very rare and highly prized gem material!!! I thought this suite of five specimens displayed gorgeously as is so I left the group intact!!! Specimens of this calibre are next to impossible to obtain - don't miss out!!! The pics hardly do it justice!!! Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!!Good luck and be sure to check out my other exciting mineral auctions on ebay!!!
