Detailed information on mineral specimen No. 70732:

Minerals Species: Schorl Tourmaline.
Location of mineral deposit: ledge above the Harvard Quarry, Noyes Mountain, Greenwood, Oxford County, Maine.
Description: Lustrous black schorl tourmaline crystal with remnants of muscovite-quartz matrix on the bottom. The schorl crystal is a 12-sided prism with three-faced pyramidal termination. I collected this many years before Frank Perham opened the Morgan Pit here. The specimen was extracted from solid rock, not from a cavity, resulting in minor surface imperfections where the surrounding matrix was removed. From my personal collection; collected ca. 1994.
Overall size of mineral specimen: 24x20x16 mm.
Size of individual crystals: 20 mm
Price: $26 (plus shipping).
