Microcline, Albite, Schorl
Cabinet, 13.3 x 8.3 x 6.0 cm
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
This is a gigantic, incredibly perfect crystal of an otherwise quite common mineral. It is much better and prettier in person; actually quite LUSTROUS on all faces, and with a pretty light cream color. It is complete all the way around and doubly-terminated! And, attached albite decorates the bottom of the specimen. The specimen comes from a new find in Shigar. There were not many available like this, to my knowledge, and they were snapped up quickly. A superb crystal specimen! 13.3 x 8.3 x 6.0 cm
