Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A perfect gem quartz sits among a nest of green, doubly terminated tourmalines. The tourmalines have areas of chatoyancy which are reflective inclusions which give a cat’s eye appearance. This piece is crystallized all around and is dramatic and 3D on display. One of the tourmalines has interrupted the growth of the quartz on the right side, but the quartz growth continued perfectly in the center to create a perfect gem termination. An aesthetic miniature of a famous pegmatite!
