Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.4 x 3.2 x 2.4 cm
A beautiful combination specimen from the Shigar Valley of Pakistan. A totally gem, complexly terminated, 2.5 cm, champagne-colored topaz crystal rests at the foot of a gemmy, bi-colored, green to teal-blue tourmaline "smokestack." The tourmaline has a frosted pyramidal termination. The topaz and tourmaline are pristine. Lustrous, pearlescent, bladed cleavelandite completes this combination piece.
