Black Tourmaline 'Schorl' Thumbnail Specimen from Erongo Mountains, Namibia

Regular price $30.00

This is a thumbnail specimen of black tourmaline, known as schorl, from the Erongo Mountains, Erongo Region, Namibia. Schorl is unique because, unlike other tourmaline varieties, it is never transparent. The name had been around since before the 1400s, coming from the original name of a town in Germany where it was mined - this town is now known as 'Zchorlau'. This specimen features multiple schorl crystals grown together, some terminated but all with a very shiny lustre.

This specimen is approximately 1.5cm x 1.5cm x 1cm. You will also receive a complimentary 'perky' display box and a label card with the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
