PKMT121 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 conjoined Watermelon Tourmaline crystal has a bright pink center with a translucent green outer ring, fading into a green cap. It has beautiful vertical striations and levels of basal termination.
