A magnificent specimen from Afghanistan's famous Mawi pegmatite, featuring an electric-blue, totally gem elbaite tourmaline crystal ~6.5 cm long perched on lepidolite and quartz matrix. The color, transparency, and quality of the tourmaline is truly exceptional, and the crystal is almost like a cut gemstone in terms of transparency and freedom from flaws. Afghan matrix tourmalines of this caliber are very rare on today's market and this is a choice example from the Proctor Family Trust Collection.
