Schorl is the most common species of tourmaline, however, it is not as commonly faceted as its brightly colored brothers and sisters because of its black color. Well-formed schorl crystals make striking mineral specimens and long, thin schorl crystals are frequently found in quartz, called "tourmalinated quartz."
