Tourmaline, Tourmaline (Var: Rubellite)
Konar (Kunar; Konarh; Konarha; Nuristan) Province, Afghanistan
Miniature, 4.2 x 2.8 x 1.7 cm
An unusually fine bubblegum-pink cluster of tourmaline, complete all around, and phenomenally 3-dimensional and aesthetic! Seldom do you see clusters for some reason - they tend to form up as singles, or as big matrix pieces. I cannot say as I have ever seen one of this style as a miniature size that I like as much as this one. 4.2 x 2.8 x 1.7 cm
