A 2.3 cm tourmaline is nestled in a cluster of terminated and nonterminated quartz crystals. The tourmaline has a gemmy green zone at the termination which becomes a translucent yellow-green further down. The termination itself is sharp yet striated, perhaps due to contact with another crystal now absent. Displays nicely either vertically or horizontally. Trivial microchipping noted on the tourmaline, otherwise no damage.
