Tourmaline with Feldspar from Afghanistan

This Multi-color Tourmaline crystal from Badakhshan, Afghanistan is truly amazing.

It is 10 cm long and 4 cm across with super lustrous faces and it’s doubly terminated!

It has one repair in the middle but Overall it has a luscious yellow-green color, close inspection and backlighting reveal its true color complexity with a maxing ribbon of pink, purple, yellow, and green colors.

The crystal has a greenish brown interior for much of its length and birth with a lovely reddish purple exterior. The top portion of the crystal, within about one inch of the termination, has numerous colors!

The remaining crystal is gemmy to translucent with only variable amounts of internal crazing obscuring its gemminess; it’s not cloudy at all.

The lower termination has a white patch of what looks like naturally rehealed, wrapping around the bottom.

The crystal stands by itself wearing a lovely white Albite attached to the crystal making the crystal with a matrix!
