A fine, single crystal of deep green Elbaite from the, for this specific species, well known locality Virgem da Lapa of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The crystal is distinctively striated, more precicely nicely scored with great luster. One side of the crystal is nicely terminated as well and the whole crystal has only minor imperfections. For a better view of the colour I have used backlight. In every case a beautiful thing.
