A gorgeous, gemmy and lustrous, multi-hued green tourmaline with a very gemmy, light purple/lavender termination from Pech, Afghanistan. The pinacoid termination is extremely glassy and the tourmaline is beautifully complimented by the snow-white albite. A very high quality tourmaline from this famous locality, as purple and green tourmalines are not that common.
