PKMT120 Paprok Mine Tourmaline

Sorry, this item is out of stock

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 conjoined Watermelon Tourmaline crystal has a bright pink center with a translucent green outer ring, fading to a clearer section and then to a darker/brighter green cap on one end. It has beautiful vertical striations and levels of basal termination.
