Khibiny Massif, Kola Peninsula, Murmanskaja Oblast', Northern Region, Russia
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.1 x 2.9 cm
Sharp, lustrous, partially gemmy, carmine-red crystals of eudialyte richly and aesthetically cover solid eudialyte matrix on this excellent specimen from the famed Khibiny Massif of the Kola Peninsula, Russia. The centrally located, 1.1 cm crystal has textbook crystal form and is a stunner. Eudialyte is a rare zirconium silicate and this is a highly representative specimen for the species and locality. Old material from the early 1990s.
