This is a large and visually arresting specimen of Brazilian green tourmaline that has grown in and through clear quartz. The quartz crystal is speared through by dozens of crystals of green tourmaline that are up to pencil thickness, which stick through and part way out of the quartz. The tourmaline crystals have a bright, wet-look luster, and are colored a rich grass green. The quartz crystal itself is nearly transparent, and is formed in a well-developed jacare (elestial) structure. This is a highly aesthetic, gemmy, and quite remarkable specimen. I acquired this amazing crystal from a wholesale dealer in Governador Valadares on my 2016 trip to Brazil.
