Schorl, Tourmaline (Var: Indicolite), Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz), Albite
Paprok, Nuristan Province (Nurestan; Nooristan), Afghanistan
Cabinet, 13.3 x 6.5 x 4.8 cm
A STUNNING and DRAMATIC CABINET combination specimen from Paprok, Afghanistan. Two, parallel-growth, lustrous schorl crystals have striking, gemmy, indicolite-blue terminations! The schorls are beautifully and aesthetically accented by gemmy, water-clear, smoky quartz crystals and wrapped in snow-white albite. This is an outstanding, essentially pristine, complete all-around combo piece, with only minimal contacting at the base, on the back and out of sight from this famous locality.
