Large blue cap Tourmaline crystal, complete all around with some attached Albite. The crystal has a 1cm thick blue zone at the termination followed by a 1.5 cm thick purple zone over a darker core. The color is spectacular!! It is a little dark in ambient light but with backlighting the color really comes out. Local collector Jack Halpern dislays his Tourmalines all lined up in a case backed by translucent white plastic that is backlit, which really highlights the colors of his Tourmaline. This crystal would look fantastic in such a display. Weighs 107 grams.

Large, lustrous crystals of electric blue Azurite. This is a great study piece as the edges of the Azurite are broken in areas revealing fibrous crystalline Malachite inside and only a thin veneer of Azurite on the outside. The thin layer of Azurite over internal Malachite yields the great electric blue color.
