This specimen is a singly terminated very dark green tourmaline crystal with a single herderite crystal on the termination and several around the base. The old A. Seibel label states "schorl" but because it is, in fact, dark green in strong light, I think it could be elbaite. The herderite crystals are all fairly sharp, beigey coloured crystals. Very nice! t
