A lustrous, terminated, and jet black tourmaline crystal accented with a little contrasting matrix. The tourmaline species is most likely schorl, however, tourmaline species cannot in general be assigned by sight alone; chemical analysis is needed. This imperfect tourmaline crystal is contacted, chipped in a few spots, and cracked, but it's a big tourmaline for the price.
