Tourmaline var. Elbaite
Kunar, Nuristan, Afghanistan
4.4 x 1.5 x 1.2 cm.
A spectacular specimen of GEMMY tri-color Elbaite Tourmaline from Kunar, Afghanistan. It features a 15.3 gram, perfectly terminated Tourmaline crystal that exhibits a rich blue cap over a light-pink midsection, and a deep forest-green base. Aside from some small contact areas near the bottom, the crystal is in pristine condition. COMPLETE ALL THE WAY AROUND, with good views around all sides. From my personal collection, acquired in 2004.
