Black Tourmaline xx - Gr.Speickkogel

In the summit area of the Grossen Speick (2.104 m) are several prgmatite outcrops with white granular marble in which often abundant black tourmaline -centimeter-sized silvery shiny muscovite xx as well as garnet (Spessartine) and with much luck also zircons are to be found.It is very difficult to chisel free standing Tourmaline crystals out of the often heavy pegmatite blocks – this is only possible if the crystals are found in the quartz – but then there is a big danger that they jump out – sometimes it is desperate – but C’est la vie !
