Titanite, Albite (Var: Pericline)
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 6.0 x 5.0 cm
Leiterkogel Mt., Habach valley, Hohe Tauern Mts, Salzburg, Austria
This is a fine old classic but also an aesthetic, well-balanced specimen for any titanite locality, featuring a doubly-terminated, pristine, lustrous, 4.5 cm crystal of translucent green twinned titanite perched on contrasting white matrix of pericline feldspar. Ex. Robert Metzger and Schwethelm Collections.
