UL5-4E0Tourmaline A(D3)G6(Si6O18)(BO3)3X3Z

Pottersville, Chester Township, Warren Co., New York, USA

Here is a spectacular specimen of Tourmaline from a waterfall inside of a marble cave. I found this specimen clung to the wall and myself and a fellow collector broke it off of the wall. Normally we leave crystals like this on the wall of the cave for other cavers to expiernce, but this was going to be eroded off in the near future. Little damage. Notice the natural pitting where Calcite was naturally eroded out by the power of the waterfall.

Specimen now resides in the Natural Stone Bridge and Caves "Museum"

I do not have it in front of me so I can not give the exact dimension but I believe the crystal was about two and one half inches long.

This is a one time find and shows the possibility of the marble deposits in Pottersville, New York.
