Eosphorite, Topaz, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Chamachhu, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 4.7 x 2.8 cm
This is a fine specimen from this very isolated yet exciting discovery. It features a few alluring euhedral crystals of bright orange Eosphorite measuring up to 8 mm long which are associated with a complete, gem/gemmy, sharp, lustrous, slightly smoky colored Topaz crystal (plus a smaller one at the base) along with a few pale pinkish-purple crystal aggregates of Lepidolite on white Albite (var: "Cleavelandite") matrix. The specimen is simply one of the most attractive association specimens I have seen of this material, and it seems to be impossible to find on the market now. A superb and aesthetic small cabinet size specimen featuring the brightest color Eosphorite that I have seen from any pegmatite locality. Ex. Brian Kosnar Collection.
