A massive hematite specimen from the historic locale at Elba Island. It shows characteristic solid hematite blades with metallic black luster. There are several contacted or damaged zones around the piece but there is still a rich multitude of sharp and well defined hematite crystals present!
Doubly terminated, strawberry colored and with a very nice surface structure! This tourmaline from the Ampanivana pegmatite is overall in near-perfect condition with modified terminations on bottom and top. The crystal needs direct backlight to reveal its colors but those are really worth it as the predominant strawberry red is encased by a fresh apple green which is totally beautiful!
