Himalaya Mine (Himalaya pegmatite; Himalaya dikes), Gem Hill, Mesa Grande District, San Diego Co., California, USA
This cluster of twinned feldspar crystals has to be among the largest ever recovered from the Himalaya mine, and IS one of the 2 or 3 largest specimens of any good quality. It is actually completely crystallized all around. One side displays the associations and the other displays the clean faces of the feldspars. Really, quite impressive in person! From the hands of 3 major County collectors, too. 25 x 14.6 x 14.3 cm
