A superb thumbnail specimen featuring a great range of colors for a smaller crystal. The steep pyramidal termination ranges from lively pink hue to a slight colorless “Achroite” zone that grades into a nearly black zone that gives way to a very thin olive-green band, and then into a rich blue-green zone with a notable “Achorite” basal termination on the other end. This is a really cool multicolor Tourmaline crystal from the most famous Tourmaline locality in Pakistan. I have seen many Tourmaline specimens from Stak Nala over the years and the one characteristic that many of them lacked was decent color, so to find so much color packed into a thumbnail like this is unusual in my experience. Tourmalines are not easy to obtain in good thumbnail sized specimens, and this one would make a great addition to any collection due to its unique form and coloration. From a find in 2011.
