Item Description

A cool association specimen from Pakistan featuring a few prismatic crystals of multicolor Tourmaline which range in color from a bronze hue at the termination to a beautiful blue-green and ending with a very dark green (virtually black) at the base. The Tourmalines are beautifully piericing a GEM quality, sharp, lustrous, colorless, prismatic Quartz crystal with a few additional Quartz crystals along with a couple of "books" of golden Muscovite and white Albite. If you turn the piece over, you can see the Tourmaline crystals grew all the way through to the base. Good shape overall, despite a bit of roughness to a few of the Tourmalines. If you're a Tourmaline collector, and you're into aesthetic association specimens, do not miss out on this one.
