Elbaite, Albite
Stak Nala, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.7 x 4.5 x 4.0 cm
This is a rare and aesthetic combination specimen from the famous 1980s finds at Stak Nala, Pakistan. A 3.3 cm, gemmy and lustrous, doubly terminated, polychrome tourmaline is set on the side of a euhedral, pristine, floater albite crystal. Few Stak Nala toumalines have as much pink as this beautiful crystal does. The pink grades downward to two shades of green before reaching the colorless basal termination.
