Eosphorite, Vayrynenite
Chamachhu, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.7 x 2.6 cm
This is certainly one of the finest small miniatures from this very isolated yet exciting discovery. It is an awesome association specimen. It features a dramatic crystallized burst of tan to orange color Eosphorite crystals measuring up to 1.5 cm long which are associated with a few bright pink sprays of acicular Vayrynenite (approximately 6 mm across) which are associated with green, blue and black Tourmaline, and a small spherical somewhat rosette-shaped aggregate of an unknown brown mineral (possibly a phosphate?) on white Albite matrix. The piece is valued at $1400 retail. A superb and aesthetic miniature size specimen featuring a rare association of species. Ex. Brian Kosnar Collection.
