Schorl or Dravite
Large, doubly-terminated black tourmaline crystal in matrix. Excellent condition, shiny prism faces.

with Rhodochrosite and Quartz
A good small-cabinet specimen having abundant crystals of gray, metallic tetrahedrite with white aggregates of rhodochrosite and frosty white xtls of quartz. Much to see on this specimen- several ways to display it.
The tetrahedrite xtls are well-defined, although there is some minor erosion on some corners. Close inspection of these suggests most of the losses are actual incomplete or eroded areas, not damage from handling.

Ship. wt. 1 lb.
