Tourmaline Var. Schorl With Albite
Basha Nala, Skardu District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 3.0 x 2.4 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda

As Schorls go, this is a stunning specimen. This gleaming, striated doubly-terminated crystal of Schorl tourmaline, 6.9 cm long, rests on a series of white Feldspar crystals, themselves decorated with a sparkly 'druse' of micro Muscovites. This Schorl looks like a rocket shooting through the cloud tops. Just a wonderful, aesthetic piece. You could not design it any better.
