KP27 Tourmaline var. Dravite
Kokcha Valley, Badakhshan, Afghanistan 6.4x 5.2x 5.1 cm
6.4x 5.2x 5.1 cm
Of the approximately 10 specimens I saw from this find, most had crystals that were somewhat buried in the mica matrix or which were incomplete. I purchased the best two, this is the larger one.
This is a from new find of blue-green tourmaline. I am guessing it’s dravite from the color and shape—the crystals are very short, nearly tabular prisms.
