A beautiful single crystal of Elbaite Tourmaline from the classic deposit at Paprok in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan. The 7.8 cm tall crystal has a bright glassy lustre and grades from mixed shades of rhubarb green and pinkish-red to a mainly zingy apple-green stem and terminating in clear, colourless Elbaite with delicate lilac tinges on the faces and tip of the pyramidal termination. The main crystal has smaller green crystals in parallel growth along its prism faces.  Covering one complete side of the crystal are masses of jumbled small Elbaite crystals of water-clear and colourless to sour-apple-green.  A totally splendid Elbaite from Paprok in  Afghanistan.
