Rubellite Crystal from Paprok Afghanistan
When I think of intensive pink color I have this very special specimen of rubellite in mind! The single crystal strikes with absolutely impressive pink color that is uniform throughout the whole crystal! And make no mistake, the color in the pictures is quite realistic!
Have a look on our video for further assurance! This rather thick and solid rubellite is translucent to even transparent with great luster on all sides and a flat, frosted termination.
The whole thing is flawless, even the bottom is not broken but contacted! It was found in Paprok, where rubellite is known but exceedingly rare when it comes to such color and perfection!
