Ex. Jeffrey Starr
Well-proportioned and very attractive, this combination is also representative for the famous Shigar Valley of northern Pakistan. The beautiful and gemmy Fluorite has a complex habit, appealing sea-foam green color, and excellent fluorescence. It is 1.2 cm across. The Fluorite rests perfectly at the base of a lustrous, striated 3 cm Schorl. There are several small Schorls that grow out near the base, creating a very appealing accent to the overall piece. The main Schorl crystal has the classic trigonal 'Mercedes' termination. An excellent, aesthetic piece.
