Elbaite, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Stak Nala, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.0 x 2.6 cm
An EXCELLENT and AESTHETIC Stak Nala specimen of a pristine, doubly terminated, tri-colored tourmaline crystal surrounded by tan cleavelandite. Pink-tipped, gemmy Stak Nala tourmalines are the LEAST COMMON and MOST DESIRABLE tourmaline varietal from this famous locality, as most are two colors of green. This piece, most assuredly, is from finds 15-20 years ago.
