Hydroxylherderite
Miniature, 3.7 x 3.2 x 3.0 cm
Shigar Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
Ex. Herb Obodda
SOLD
These green Hydroxlherderites are rare from Shigar Valley and highly sought-after, as they are also unique in all the world for the species. This specimen is exceptional in it's sharp form and complete quality. It is rich green, translucent/gemmy, lustrous, and doubly-terminated. Really, it looks like a double-terminated green chisel-point Topaz! A great single crystal for any collector of textbook gem crystals, Pakistan minerals, or sharp miniatures. Long in the Obodda private collection since this famous find of the late 1990s.
