ID: CC13881
A stunning Tourmaline crystal of wonderful colour and with a perfect termination from Nuristan Province in Afghanistan.  The single crystal measures 4.3 x 1.3 x 1.0 cm and is of a magnificent turquoise-green aqua-blue with many gemmy zones and of overall good transparency.  The crystal does contain various types of inclusions and wispy flaws when observed against a good light.  The prism faces are deeply striated and the termination is that of a flattened pyramid with slightly frosted termination faces with lustrous flattened edges in between.  Attached to one side of the Tourmaline is a 2.6 x 1.5 x 1.0 cm cluster of slightly smoky Quartz crystals, with a few prism and termination faces present.  This is a choice specimen of blue Tourmaline.
The Tourmaline is mounted on a cubic, clear acrylic base with a thin patch of “hot” glue.  This can be removed, if required, by softening the glue in a little warm water for a short while (submerging only the base and glue), after which the crystal will peel away cleanly from the glue.
