Thumbnail, 2.3 x 2.3 x 2.1 cm
A superb, rare, combination thumbnail from Stak Nala, Pakistan. A 2.1 cm, gemmy, lustrous and striated, bi-colored, green with a teal-blue, indicolite termination tourmaline has a 1.1 cm, sharply hexagonal, gemmy and lustrous, pastel-pink apatite crystal attached to the side. Sharp albite crystals partially encircle this piece. This is definitely older material from the 1980s finds.
