Titanite, Muscovite, Albite
Tormiq valley (Tormic; Tormik; Tormig; Turmiq), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.8 x 2.0 cm
Two lustrous, translucent, rich yellow-green titanite crystals are aesthetically set in sculptural matrix of bladed muscovite rosettes and albite on this fine specimen from the well-known Tormiq Valley of Pakistan. The alpine clefts at Tormiq have produced a wide array of very fine minerals and this is certainly one. Both crystals are pristine and the right crystal is sharply twinned.
