PKMT138 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 Watermelon Tourmaline crystal has a bright pink center surrounded by a pale green outer ring, fading into a green cap on one end. It has beautiful vertical striations and basal termination.
