Elbaite Tourmaline, Albite

Specimen # 102083
Mineral: Elbaite Tourmaline, Albite
Location: Elbaite Tourmaline, Albite, Stak Nala, Gilgit-Skardu Road, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Size: 3.8 x 3.8 x 2.8 cm


This is a beauty – the elbaite crystal rises up with small albite crystals joining it to the large albite. The elbaite is sharp with lustrous prism faces and a matte termination, and the albite crystals hve a bright, glassy lustre. The elbaite is a dark crystal – with a strong light behind it, it is deep olive green with a thin lighter blue zone right at the tip. In excellent condition, no damage, and stands perfectly for display as photographed. An aesthetic pairing of these contrasting minerals – really nice.
