Description

What a spectacular crystal - below the modified end-points you can see tones of blue color, a zoning of light lavender color, then an intense green area, at the lower third a concetration of very rare orange color and down to the base olive-green areas. This crystal unify some of the most rare colors of Tourmaline group! And it needs just minor backlight to show this explosion of colors. The faces - including the end-points - show excellent luster and very attractive texture. Complete all around (with one contact probably to an other small liddioatite crystal at the reverse), bottom was on the rock - no significant damages to report.
