Arfvedsonite, Aegirine
Mt Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.0 x 2.4 cm
An interesting arfvedsonite pseudomorph and overgrowth specimen from recent finds at Mt. Malosa, Malawi. First, this is a two-sided specimen, with the two, nicely angled crystals. Second, the crystals are pseudomorphs of arfvedsonite after sharp aegirine crystals. And third, a second generation overgrowth of gemmy, sparkly, green arfvedsonite needles has covered most of both of the pseudomorphs.
