Schorl-Albite-Quartz

$395.00

White albite mineral formed around a couple of jet-black lustrous crystals of schorl with pure quartz in between.

Schorl is the most common mineral in the Tourmaline Group. All tourmalines form similar crystals because they are isostructural, meaning that they share the same internal crystalline structure.

Albite is usually white (The word is derived from the same root word albino) or colorless but can be shades of blue, yellow, orange and brown.

Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the earth’€™s continental crust. The name is derived from the German word “€œquarz”€. Pure quartz is colorless and transparent (clear) or translucent.
