Pollucite (Fluorescent), Lepidolite, and Aquamarine
Shengus area, Skardu Road, Gilgit Division, Pakistan
Cabinet, 14.0 x 11.0 x 8.5 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda

SUPERB set of large Pollucite crystals from the Shengus area of Pakistan. Pollucite is a Cesium hydrous silicate, and these three crystals are excellent for the species, and rather large. The piece overall is a dramatic display specimen with good balance, which is, again, so rare for this material. Two of the three sitting on matrix are complete, the largest being an amazing 7 cm across. The least and third crystal is contacted on the back. Any one crystal would make an excellent specimen, but three in such a cluster is almost unheard of. Beautiful blue-white fluorescence is a bonus. Overall, a dramatic and important specimen for this species.
