Londonite, Liddicoatite, Microcline
Antsongombato gem mine, FKT Antsentsindrano, Andrembesoa Commune, Betafo District, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.8 x 2.9 cm
A superb combination specimen that includes the very rare species, londonite, the cesium-dominant analogue of rhodizite. A gemmy and lustrous, 2.1 cm, sharp londonite crystal with vivid yellow color sits atop a beautifully contrasting, lustrous, cranberry-red liddicoatite crystal on microcline matrix. It is uncommon to see both londonite and liddicoatite in such richness together in a specimen.
