Summary

Description
English: Elbaite
Locality: Cruzeiro mine, São José da Safira, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: 26.5 cm x 3.8 x 3.7 cm.
This crystal is the size of my arm from elbow to wrist! It originally came from the collection of noted gem crystal collector Gene Meieran, who along with partners (dealer Wayne Thompson) financed mining at this small locality for a few years and recovered a small number of these large, electric-green crystals. The color is a VIBRANT electric green! At the base, there are red and blue zones; but the majority is this intense green color which runs through 11 cm of the crystal to the opaque termination. I would not say the entire zone is facetable, but there nevertheless IS a sizeable quantity of first-class electric-vibrant-green tourmaline facet rough in there. There are two repairs at approx. the 1/3 and 2/3 marks along the crystal. As you can see from the pictures (taken in fairly normal frontal light, with the addition of a moderate backlight), the cracks at the junctions are not really noticeable from a distance as anything more than internal veils look; although they are visible up close. Given the size, even with two repairs, this is a stunning piece. It is otherwise undamaged, and complete all around!
