Elbaite, Quartz, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Stak Nala, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.4 x 2.3 x 1.9 cm
A really fine cluster of two stacked, polychrome tourmalines from the 1980s finds at Stak Nala, Pakistan. The upper, doubly terminated tourmaline is strikingly embedded in the termination of the lower crystal. The gemmy and lustrous crystals have classic, highly desirable, pink terminations with multi-hued, green bodies. A sharp, glassy, quartz crystal and cleavelandite blade are superb accents to this piece. A beautiful and aesthetic Stak Nala tourmaline combination specimen.
