Foitite, Albite
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.5 x 4.0 cm
Paprok, Nuristan Province (Nurestan; Nooristan), Afghanistan
A riveting purple-capped foitite on contrasting rosettes of stark white albite makes this a highly unusual specimen. The termination is perfect save for a tiny ding on the leftmost small edge which does not visually detract. The purple color is visible, nicely enough, with only minimal back-lighting required and these shots were taken without a particularly strong light. 6.2 x 5.5 x 4 cm
