Tourmaline Var. Rubellite
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 4.4 x 3.7 cm
Mawi, Nuristan, Laghman Province, Afghanistan

Rarely do you see a rubellite from this locale in matrix! Most often, they are just singles, or have some minor attached matrix at base. This, however, is a doubly-terminated, pristine, 5.8 x 3 x 2 cm crystal that is perched aesthetically still on its matrix. This is a frozen doubly-terminated crystal! It COULD be pried cleanly out of matrix (and as a floater, worth more?), but these are so rare, I would not want to. This was collected around 2003-2004. Comes with custom lucite display base
