ID: CC13451
An attractive miniature cluster of Tourmaline crystals in parallel growth, from Konar Province in Nuristan, Afghanistan.  The actual locality is somewhere within the Konar valley or one of the valleys of its confluence, but this area remains ill-defined and locality information is rarely more specific. Probably Elbaite, the Tourmaline crystals change from a translucent silky electric-blue to a lustrous but opaque very dark ink-blue, which appears black.  All crystals are nicely terminated with flat pinacoid faces and a 1.8 cm long double terminated Quartz crystal is attached to one side. A great “indicolite” Tourmaline from Konar Province.
