The Power's Farm local has produced world class black tourmaline crystal specimens for decades.  This site is still open to mineral collectors.  Quality specimens can be difficult to find but are there for those willing to put in the hours, days or years required to find them.  We live 20 minutes from the site and have collected there for over 30 years.  As a result you will find some very respectable specimens listed below.  Any individual crystal exceeding 2.5 cm (approx. 1 inch) in diameter is considered rare at this location. 

I have not listed the high end pieces here.  My very best specimens are the very best in the world.  Contact me for availability and private viewings.  Don't forget to check out the article on the site. Photographed above are several of the very best uvite specimens ever found at the Bower Powers farm.  As of 2017 these crystals of tourmaline have been analyzed and found to be zoned... Dravite with Fluor-uvite cores.  I will not be recreating tags or descriptions.
