Digging through this big bag again and found another cool crystal..now out of the massive amount of tourmaline I have held and looked at i very very rarely ever see a floater..just very rare I guess..no contact points on this crystal cluster..only terminations..color sucks(super high saturated green) but nice crystal habit

that's an interesting tourmaline specimen, too, amguy!! wondering if you knew what the "string-looking" material is in the second photo? and you think it may have copper in it, too? 8) i know you have received quite a bit of different specimens from different locations in the middle east, but, what's the origin of the tourmaline?
