Black Tourmaline (Schorl) on crystallized and biterminated Quartz crystals. The main crystal of Schorl is not finished and there is a break on one of the smallest peripheral crystals of Quartz which explains its mini price! Nevertheless, this piece will delight a low budget collector who will be able to acquire a rather rare sample of this deposit.
