Paprok Mine, Kamdesh District, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan
Overall Size: 9.3 x 2.8 cm
This is a very fine, totally natural, highly bright and glassy gem crystal of pastel pink elbaite. The extreme shine of this crystal is impeccable and hard to capture. The terminations are complete and undamaged. This specimen was probably collected decades ago from the gem bearing pegmatites of Paprok in Pakistan.
