.73" Black Tourmaline (Schorl) - Namibia

This is a cute little schorl crystal on feldspar from the Erongo Mountains in Namibia. Although it has broken away from the host rock or matrix, the crystal is in overall great shape, and has crisp, natural terminations.

Tourmaline is a crystalline boron silicate mineral compounded with elements such as aluminium, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Schorl, or black tourmaline, is the most common form of tourmaline, and has been used for everything from jewelry to piezoelectric guitar pickups.
