Multicolor Elbaite-Liddicoatit, Luc Yen  Recently, Vietnam has become an intersting and promising source of wonderful mineral specimen. In 2004 a pocket with pastell colored Tourmalines was hit in Luc Yen. The Tourmalines turned out to be Liddicoatit, and sometimes there is a core of Elbait. The specimen occur embedded in lithium mica (Lepidolit). Unfortunately, most touralines were removed from the matrix. The piece on the left was also violently broken off from the matrix. A lucky coincidence preserved the the matrix part with its large books of Lepidolith. The 2 halves finally found their way back together and were restored by Dana Gochenour. The Tourmaline alone was about 2 pounds. The inner part is Elbait, the outer part Liddicoatit.



Red Liddicoatit, Luc Yen The picture on the right is from the same localityin VIetnam, just a year later: in 2005 a pocket with large, red Liddicoatits was hit in Luc Yen. The wonderful pieces were displayed for example at the mineral show in Munich in 2006. This piece was preserved in the matrix. Most intereting, when turned around one sees that very often there is Amazonite associated in the matrix, which can be of finest cutting quality in Luc Yen.
