Indicolite on Star Mica from Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/J981a.jpg] Indicolite on Star Mica from Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/J981b.jpg] Indicolite on Star Mica from Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/J981c.jpg] Indicolite on Star Mica from Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/J981d.jpg]

Floater specimen of golden star-shaped Muscovite with bladed white Feldspar hosting a transparent blue Tourmaline crystal.
This specimen is neat enough just with the star mica crystals sticking out in all directions all around, but the 1.2cm blue
Tourmaline makes it extra special. This must have formed in the center of a pegmatite pocket, not attached to any pocket walls.
Out of an old collection. The Tourmaline has an irregular termination (likely a piece that broke off the wall during growth
and partially regrew with the Mica).
