Zebra Tourmaline - A Photomicrograph for Virtual Backgrounds



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 JPG

Impress your friends and coworkers during your next virtual meeting by transporting yourself into the inner world of a TOURMALINE!

I bought this material in Tucson, sold under the name "zebra" tourmaline.
It caught my eye because it seemed... unsalable 😅. Though that might keep some from purchasing these stones, I immediately saw its potential.
It has pink and green color-zoning, dramatic changes in clarity, and patchy chatoyancy (growth tubes that start and stop in clusters). All that makes for dynamic scenes and I was lucky enough to photograph one.

Note: this is a 2:3 ratio photograph.
This is a digital download and the photograph will contain a watermark.

How do I use it for zoom?
1. In the Zoom app, click your profile in the top right corner, then click "Settings".
2. On the menu to the left, click "Virtual Background", then click the + icon next to "Choose Virtual Background".
3. Navigate to the background photo you want to use for your Zoom meeting and select it!

It's beautiful and brightens my day as my desktop. Just a stand-in until I buy *all of the prints*!

Shipped super fast. The print is gorgeous. I asked the artist for his recommendation for framing, and he thought a natural wood frame with a matte would look nice. I'm glad I took his advice. It looks fantastic, and my hubby loves his Christmas present. Very happy customer.
