Spessartine, Muscovite, Albite
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.6 x 4.0 x 2.6 cm
A sculptural and aesthetic combination specimen from recent finds in Pakistan. The V-shaped albite crystal matrix is beautifully accented with gemmy, cherry-red spessartine crystals. The coup de grace of this specimen, though, is the centrally located pearlescent, muscovite "sail" with the two, gorgeous, isolated spessartines and the spessartine cluster at the base of the muscovite blade. Classic combination material from Shengus.
