Locality: Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil (Locality at mindat.org)
I have never even seen a tourmaline with rose quartz from these old localities?! This one just floored me! It is a smoky quartz specimen from one side, a smoky with rose quartz from another angle, and a tourmaline on multicolored quartz specimen from yet a third angle of view!. The smokies are nearly pristine (just minor ding here and there) and are very gemmy and lustrous. The rose quartz forms a wreath around 50% of the circumference of the specimen. The tourmaline, which is a true indicolite for its blue hue, measures 4 cm from end to end and is perched on teh side of a smoky, with its termination facing into the rose wreath. Now, the tourmaline upward-facing end IS broken or frankly this would be a mega-priced rock, but still its a very attractive and highly interesting combination piece from classic 70s era or older localities in Brazil. ex. Dr. Gary Hansen dealer stock and not shown since early 1980s. 10.1 x 9 x 7.2 cm
