Natural Small Froijite Black Tourmaline Crystal Formation With Quartz & Feldspar x 12 from Erongo, Namibia

R 726.00 ZAR
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. Otherwise - Stunning Black Tourmaline crystals or clusters show Mercedes or Acicular terminations. Associated minerals include Orthoclase. Erongo also tends to yield some of the best specimen grade Tourmaline specimens world wide. The range of habit, size and associated minerals can be extensive. Always a winner in any retail environment. Items are grade dependent. Item/s are as shown.
