Natural Medium to Large Froijite Black Tourmaline & Fan Formation In Quartz Crystals x 3 from Erongo, Namibia

R 1,188.00 ZAR
One specimen has a large siderite crystal in association! A very nice selection. Otherwise Froijite / Foitite is a form of Schorl Tourmaline which has a fan-like crystal habit. This is a fairly new reoccurrence from the region. This is not commonly available as the majority of this material occurs as either single crystals or clusters of single crystals with classic Mercedes terminations, or classic Trigonal crystals with acicular like terminations. This new Froijite material reminds me of black kyanite in many respects with distinctive fan like clusters. Stunning NEW unique specimens for the collectors. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.

Size = 4 - 7 inch
Size = 102 - 177 mm
Grade = Very Good to A Grade
Product Type = Small Batch
Weight = 1470 g | 3.2 lbs

SKU = A39229-BT
