Tourmaline (Dravite with Fluoruvite cores) Powers Farm, Pierrepont, St. Lawrence County, New York. Field collected by Michael Walter Summer 2013 from classic site on hilltop. These specimens collected during the 2013 season are fine examples naturally weathered from a large open vein that was somehow missed by many decades of serious collectors that came before me. I spent 38 days working the vein to recover these specimens which are all of very fine quality. Again, these specimens are naturally exposed, not etched, so they are exceptionally stable and the tiny fractures seen in close up views are almost always fully healed. Most came from a depth of five to ten feet below the surface and many could benefit from further cleaning. This is a fine, naturally etched in nature, cluster.  An outstanding cluster with crystals on every side. All dravite including the matrix. A float piece found loose in the pocket. Only minor contacts (edges) or missing crystals none of which distract from the overall appeal of the piece. 5.2 x 4.2 x 2.5 cm overall with crystals to 1.3 cm each. This is the type and quality of specimen from this location that everyone hopes to find and seldom does. $225
