Afghanistan is quite capable of producing some of the world's finest, most intensely colored Tourmalines.  Though these are often overshadowing by cuprian stones from Mozambique, the bright sea-green colors of these Afghani stones is quite unique.  This is a gorgeous matched pair, essentially a perfect match in terms of size and color.  The cutting deserves particular mention here, the angles are so good that the stones are capable of producing the same brilliance pattern - really quite astounding and a level of precision that is often lacking in matched pairs.  As the price for this rough goes up exponentially with size, this is a larger set than we are typically able to offer.
