Epidote (Dt)
Knappenwand, Untersulzbach valley, Salzburg, Austria
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 1.8 x 0.9 cm
Ex. Giancarlo Fioravanti
The great European locality of Knappenwand is known for its superb Epidotes. This cluster of tabular prisms has very fine parallel-growth, and it is doubly-terminated! The Epidotes have excellent glassy luster and are gemmy thoughout. The are classic bottle-green, and striated. A fine floater crystal, complete all around with no point of attachment! This is a rare quality for an older Knappenwand piece.
