Staurolite With Kyanite
Pizzo Forno, Tessin, Switzerland
Small Cabinet, 7.7 x 4.1 x 2.2 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn
A superb locality piece consisting of a combination of terminated, translucent to transparent, sky blue kyanite crystals to 4.5 cm, accenting deep reddish-brown staurolite crystals to 2.75 cm. They have grown in a matrix of sugary white, massive quartz. The stuarolite is especially fine, for the form and translucency of the crystal. All this, plus, coming from an old European alpine vein!
