Elbaite with Cleavelandite - purple cap
Stak Nala, Haramoush Mountains
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
4.4 x 4.2 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $400


A "purple cap" Tourmaline crystal set on contrasting white Cleavelandite. In fine condition, the termination is perfect and clear while the body of the crystal is dark and opaque. The Elbaite is 4 CM tall and the luster is very bright. Depending on the lighting used to display the piece the cap can look almost colorless or has a slight blue hue though in most settings the cap is a light violet. These are modern classics and as far as I know unique to this locality.
