Yellow Tourmaline

Twelve specimens from a new find of yellow tipped Tourmaline from Stak Nala.  Tourmaline crystals colored yellow are uncommon and I have only ever had one previous to this find (also from Pakistan).  In addition to the color, all the crystals are double terminated with pyramidal terminations on the yellow ends and with generally flat terminations on the green ends. The central areas of most crystals are a nearly opaque dark green.
