Liddicoatite

Polished slices of Liddicoatite, a calcium rich lithium Tourmaline first recognized as a separate species in 1977.  These slices are all from the Anjanabonoina pegmatite deposit in central Madagascar and are highly prized for their varied colors and geometric patterns. They are cut perpendicular to the C-axis to best show their color zoning and patterns.
