This is an exceptional specimen of indicolite tourmaline in and on lustrous clear quartz. The quartz crystal is overgrown with and speared through by pencil-thick blue indicolite tourmaline crystals, as well as several thinner ones. The tourmaline crystals are transparent and gemmy, and are colored a rich, saturated shade of cobalt blue, some with darker blue terminations. This is a highly aesthetic, gemmy, and quite remarkable specimen of the rarest color of tourmaline - indicolite blue.

Locality
Information about crystals/mineral specimens from this location


Superb specimens like this one of INDICOLITE TOURMALINE IN QUARTZ were found in 2011 at the the Lapa da Onça claim, Araçuaí, Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The tourmaline crystals from this find are intricate, long, thick, criss-crossing spears immobilized inside water-clear quartz crystals, making them very easily visible. They are colored a dark shade of blue, which helps them stand out quite clearly in the transparent, terminated quartz crystal. I purchased this specimen at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show from one of the Brazilian dealers who flew north to set up for the show.


Mineralogy
Facts about gems, rocks and minerals


Quartz is the most common mineral on the face of the earth. It is found in nearly every geological environment and is at least a component of almost every rock type. It frequently is the primary mineral, >98%. It is also the most varied in terms of varieties, colors and forms. This variety comes about because of the abundance and widespread distribution of quartz. A collector could easily have hundreds of quartz specimens and not have two that are the same due to the many broad catagories. The specimens could be separated by answers to the following questions: color?, shade?, pyramidal?, prismatic?, druzy?, twinned?, sceptered?, phantomed?, included?, tapered?, coated?, microcrystalline?, stalactitic?, concretionary?, geoidal?, banded?, etc. Multiple combinations of these could produce hundreds of unique possibilities.

Quartz is a fun mineral to collect. Its abundance on the Earth's surface is incredible and produces some wonderful varieties that don't even look like the same mineral. A collector must always be up on the many varieties of quartz and it sometimes embarrasses a collector to have collected too many specimens of such a common mineral. But nearly all collectors concede that you can never really have enough quartz specimens.

Most people consider tourmaline to be a single mineral. But in fact it is a group named for several different, but closely related minerals. Members of the Tourmaline Group are favorites among mineral collectors. Their rich and varied colors can captivate the eye. Even the black opaque tourmalines can shine nicely and produce sharp crystal forms. Tourmalines are cut as precious gems, carved into figurines, cut as cabochons, sliced into cross-sections and natural specimens are enthusiastically added to many a rock hound's collection.


Metaphysics
Information about crystal, gem and mineral metaphysics and healing


People interested in metaphysics and crystal healing tell us that indicolite blue quartz provides deep relaxation, cessation of mental chatter, state of serene reflection were a few of the comments after sessions where I used the Indicolite Quartz. A sense of the Divine comes thru, not surprising as many spiritual Beings are depicted in blue. Indicolite, amplified by the quartz, makes a powerful ally in dealing with the Throat and Third Eye Chakras. It stimulates intuition, promotes fidelity, enables harmonious interaction, helps with clearing congestions, for headaches and migraines. Treats kidney, bladder, thymus and thyroid, insomnia, sore throat.
