Titanite (Twinned)
Auraghuq, near Firgamu, Badakshan Province, Afghanistan
Thumbnail, 2.4 x 1.3 x 1.0 cm
From a new find, this was the best example I saw at the show of these remarkably bright and gemmy titanite crystals. It is sharply twinned, and displays phenomenally either horizontal or perched to show the twinning-face forward. A most unusual thumbnail, of high quality, and better in person!
