- Tourmaline var. Elbaite with Achroite top
- Miniature, 5.4 x 1.1 x 0.9 cm
- Pech, Kunar Province, Afghanistan
Colorless tourmaline sits atop a pastel palette of colors from green to pink, on this perfect gem crystal. A colorless tip makes this pocket very unique, and dramatic crystals from this find of 2015 are hard to come by. The colorless variety of tourmaline is often referred to as Achroite, although that is perhaps not a scientific term as much as a collector term. 13 grams.
