Mika pegmatite, Rangkul Highlands, Pamir Mts, Tajikistan
Miniature, 4.7 x 1.9 x 0.8 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn
An extraordinarily sharp hambergite crystal of a fine, euhedral quality and with a sharp prismatic termination! You NEVER see such quality in Tajiki hambergite! The quality here, the sharpness of the termination, is just off the charts. Hambergite from Pakistan is usually considered the finest crystallization, and even there the terminations are usually more blunt and less sharp than this one. It is complete all around, save only one small divot of natural contacting on one edge. I am enormously impressed with this crystal, for what it is.
