A stunning specimen that looks like nothing so much as dark tourmalines stuck in a wad of hot pink bubblegum. The color here is maximal for an Afghani morganite, and is much more intense, even, in person. The crystal is translucent, with some transparent areas, but universally bright and lustrous. The morganite is a floater, complete all around and fully terminated! On the screen it looks like another morganite, but believe me the color here is literally in the top percentile. It IS a standout.950
