Nordmark, Filipstad, Varmland, Sweden
Miniature, 4.5 x 2.3 x 2.0 cm
Numerous, bronze pyrosmalite crystals make up the entire display surface of this great miniature from Nordmark, Sweden. Sharp, stubby, hexagonal plates to 1.3cm across are ubiquitous. The large, prominent crystal is complete and the one to the right is a partial crystal. An old European classic of this rare manganese iron silicate, seldom seen for sale except out of old collections.
