TGMS 2008 - The Tourmaline Queen Mine

Last Updated: 6th Apr 2008

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

Bill Larson in front of the case (which he organized) of Blue Cap Tourmalines from The Tourmaline Queen Mine, California - Tucson Show 2008


The Tourmaline Queen Mine, San Diego County, California is rightly famous for the spectacular blue-cap Elbaite tourmaline crystals found there.



Many of these specimens were collected by Pala International in 1972 - including this one, one of the most famous of these is the 'Rabbit Ears' which is currently in the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Here are two views of it:
