A classic, now-rare, Stak Nala tourmaline from a famous pockets found in the mid-1980s! This is doubly-terminated, and a floater. It has the characteristic pink prism on one end, and a flat multizoned green/clear basal termination upon the other end. The piece is of high quality, overall, and shows dramatically. This style is unique in all of what has been found in the Himalayas, and remains one of the few totally unique styles of tourmaline form the region, about which you can say this. Pieces of this size and quality are scarce now on the market, as these came out in the late 1980s.
