S18730 - Elbaite with Microcline and Quartz - Price on Request
Paprok Mine, Kamdesh District, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan
Overall Size: 18.5 x 14 cm
This assemblage is outstanding for its minerals and pocket. The firmly placed microcline is one of the few really great, deluxe, sharp and completely formed crystals from an open and clean pocket that I have seen. The surface area of the piece is in unusually fine condition without repair, increasing its value. Likewise, the ever-popular mineral is widely traded, reliable and well-suited to remain so, and such a tourmaline is equal to that of gold! Few collections are graced by such a specimen of tourmaline. Ex. Ward Schuyler collection
