Schorl, Quartz
Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.7 x 1.8 cm
A very unusual and showy style of schorl and quartz from recent finds in the Shigar Valley of Pakistan. The two, lustrous, striated, bifurcating quartz "rabbit-ears" are uncommonly, for Pakistan, loaded with schorl inclusions and have schorl crystals attached to them as well. This highly lustrous, stranger is complete-all-around, pristine and one "ear" has a very interesting, smaller schorl attached to its termination.
