A very unusual piece; Quartz with the Tourmaline is in fact one of the most common of all inclusion stones, however the Tourmaline is almost universally seen as thin black needles.  From this find we have colorless Quartz with thin needles of decidedly blue Tourmaline.  The color is quite noticeable and imparts a general blue tint across the entire stone.  Attractive and quite scarce example of true Indicolite in Quartz.
