Miniature, 4.7 x 4.7 x 3.0 cm
Tormiq valley (Tormic; Tormik; Tormig; Turmiq), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Tormiq is one of the classic Titanite localities in Pakistan, and this area has produced some superb crystals of the species, especially some outstanding twins. These are "Alpine-type" Titanite crystals. This specimen features a very pronounced, sharp, lustrous, bright green, twinned crystal of Titanite with Adularia and minor Clinochlore on matrix. This specimen is a very attractive miniature and these pieces are some of the most difficult to obtain from Pakistan.
