This polished pegmatite slab contains portions of at least 2 different Elbaite crystals. The Elbaites are mostly incomplete, of course, but one of them is cross-sectioned and shows the common, rounded triangular shape of its species. This smaller piece is mostly black in color, though hints of dark green are visible, and the larger piece shows black, dark green and red colorations- all are essentially opaque.
