Here is a large and colorful specimen which features gemmy green tourmaline crystals set on bladed crystals of cleavelandite.  The tourmaline crystals, which are up to 15mm long, are nicely striated and glow a rich green.  The cleavelandite is an exquisite light turquoise blue, with typically flattened crystals to 2".  The tourmaline grew on the inside lining of a pocket that was surrounded by cleavelandite.  There are also some pale lavender lepidolite crystals which grew between blades of cleavelandite. I picked out this specimen on my 2016 buying trip to Brazil.
