SOLD
An excellent, gemmy and lustrous, 1.8 cm londonite crystal with exceptional yellow color on matrix from the co-type locality in Madagascar. Londonite is the ultra-rare, cesium-dominant analogue of rhodizite. This is a relatively large, and certainly unusually colorful crystal. One side of the rear of the crystal is cleaved, but it is certainly not detracting given that the display view from the front is stellar. There are several red tourmaline crystals in the matrix. 4.2 x 3.7 x 2.9 cm
