While matrix tourmaline specimens from the famous Paprok locality in Nuristan, Afghanistan are well-known, examples such as this with facet-quality, glassy gem elbaite crystals perched on smoky quartz crystals are very rare. This is an outstanding large matrix pink tourmaline for Paprok, with wonderful display aesthetics and a wonderfully-placed tourmaline crystal on cleavelandite and smoky quartz crystals. A fine matrix tourmaline specimen from the noted collection of Gerhard Wagner of Germany.
