Cava di Campagnano, Sacrofano Caldera, Sacrofano, Campagnano di Roma, Rome Province, Latium, Italy
Miniature, 4.6 x 3.8 x 2.8 cm
This piece is a very classic specimen of this rare phyllosilicate. It features cream-white prismatic crystals of Latiumite measuring up to 5 mm on matrix. There are no localities for Latiumite outside of Italy, and it is only appropriate that this piece was named after the district in which it was first found. A great example of this classic material. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
