As always the quality of your photos is supreme and we think we have the specimen in hand.
Allow me a remark, however, for this trio: the shade seems a little citric to me.

It is difficult to judge color viewing an image on a computer screen. Color management issues, monitor calibration, etc all influence the appearance of an image on screen. At least when I view the image on my monitor it looks just a little bit more saturated than in real life. Also depending on which browser you use and the browser color settings can impact the appearance of the image.

I know it's common in that mine that the core of the elbaites is replaced by quartz, but I think crystals with such well-crystallized quartzes are rather rare. Quite unique piece!
