Elbaite
stock #20 AE-7-082 B
Paroon Valley
Konar (Kunar) Province, Afghanistan
5.4 x 3.2 x 3.1 (cabinet)
price: $1750


A big, glassy crystal with a very dark blue-green shaft becomes a lighter blue near the top, then grades to a water clear zone and ends with a thin reddish purple cap. Well terminated with a transparent flat top and with great luster. In very good condition, with only very tiny bits of edge wear that is not easy to spot and a small unobtrusive chip on the back. An older piece this color combination is not very common. The top portion is all gem clear but the majority of the crystal is rather dark and only a little light passes through. Displays well and a good value for a stout single crystal. A hefty 106 grams.
