Mineral Specimen #6773    Tourmaline (Elbaite), Albite

Stak Nala, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan

3.7 x 3.4 x 2.5 cm
1.5 x 1.3 x 1 in


Two Tourmaline crystals encased in white Albite crystals. Much of both crystals are a very dark color, nearly black. Approximately 3/4 of the way up the crystal, the color changes to an emerald green in a narrow band and then a light yellow green. The lighter areas are gemmy and have a high luster.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: The terminations of the Tourmaline crystals are chipped, more so with the larger crystal.
