WOW, check out that Caribbean Sea-blue color! Exceedingly difficult to find since the gem trade chops up every
usable scrap from this pegmatite, which is unfortunately what happened to this parcel of crystals before I
rescued this exquisite gem clear indicolite. On a scale of lively bright color, only the famous Paraiba elbaites
surpass Afghanistan material and to be fair their chromophores are entirely different. This doubly terminated pencil
grades upward into pure electric-blue completely absent of any green overtones, and on top of that, let’s not forget
about the 100% transparency extending from top to bottom, significant value as a cut stone alone. An outright superb
and captivating tourmaline that is among the prettiest you will ever see.
