9500131) Elbaite with Lepidolite, Quartz - Paprok, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan
Size: 11.5 x 9.0 x 7.3 cm (cabinet)
Price: $ 2000
A neat large matrix tourmaline specimen consisting of an 11.5 x 9.0 x 7.3 cm partial quartz crystal, this hosting several prismatic pale pink to pale green elbaite crystals. What makes this quite different is the larger doubly terminated elbaite crystal is naturally "bent", as seen in the photos. This crystal measures just under 6.0 cm in length. There are small pale purplish crystals of lepidolite scattered about the quartz crystal matrix. There is a smaller, but still very nice, transparent pale green terminated elbaite crystal measuring 3.0 cm in length set along the left edge of the quartz crystal matrix. Undamaged; a unique and interesting addition to any suite of tourmalines or gem crystals!
