Elbaite (tourmaline) crystal
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Stak Nala area, Northern Areas, Pakistan <br /><br />8" long <br /><br />This high quality, dark-green, mainly translucent elbaite crystal is special for the following reasons: <br /><br />(a) It is double terminated. Elbaite forms polar crystals. Hence, one termination is pyramidal and the other prismatic. <br /><br />(b) It is particularly slender so resembles a magician's "wand" in appearance. <br />This piece was bought from a primary source supplier in 2010. <br />  <br />Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia   </p>
