Description

The Tourmaline Hill Pegmatite at Umberatana is well known for large lustrous schorl crystals to 7cm across, this however is nowhere near as big and more than makes up for this in asethetics.

Three black as midnight schorl crystals with fine terminations are wrapped in a fist full of white albite crystals
