Fluor-uvite Bush Farm, Gouverneur, St. Lawrence County, New York. Collected by Michael Walter, June 12, 2011. These are the few remaining specimens from an important find in 2011 that was written about by myself, Drs. George Robinson and Steve Chamberlain in the 2016, vol. 91, no. 6, Nov/Dec. issue of Rocks and Minerals Magazine. On pages 521-527 we describe numerous important finds, however I believe this to be the best of all those many (almost 200) years. Rich brown tourmalines with noteworthy gemmy areas of facet grade material were recovered. These represent the finest fluor-uvites known... and they are even fluorescent! This steeply terminated crystal is another nice example of the rarest form found at the location. It measures 2.9 x 1.7 x 1.6 cm. The crystal's form and color is more typical of the location. The luster is high and the condition excellent with only minor chipping at the base of the piece. $100
