PKMT134 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 light pink center with light inclusions and a hollow opening at the end, surrounded by a pale green outer ring. The opposite has a brighter green cap with basal termination.
