Old documents show the Kashmir mines produced stones in the 1000 or 2000ct+ range. The big stones sometimes clusters that cut various smaller stones.
This old mine specimen has a large black dravite tourmaline attached to the surface It's a unique feature to this origin. The stone also has a small clean vivid blue facetable termination.
I've seen old photographs but not many samples in the market. This mineral specimen belongs in a historical collection.
