- Cabinet, 10.0 x 1.8 x 1.6 cm
- Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
A really interesting, curved, cabinet schorl crystal from recent finds in the Shigar Valley of Pakistan. Tectonic forces during crystal growth caused this large, parallel-growth schorl to bend. The crystal is highly lustrous and striated and has multiple, matte, pinacoidal terminations.
