PKMT117 Paprok Mine Tourmaline


The Paprok mine in Afghanistan is in the mountains of a mineralogically rich pegmatite field. Situated northeast of Jalalabad in the Nuristan Province, this area is possibly the largest tourmaline deposit in Afghanistan, and frequently produces bicolor or 'watermelon' tourmalines. This Watermelon Tourmaline crystal has a pink center, translucent green outer ring, and a darker/brighter green at one end. It has beautiful vertical striations and basal termination.
