This is an absolutely exquisite mineral specimen of ANY species and such a balanced thumbnail it is amazing! Aesthetically perched on contrasting matrix, is a cluster of gemmy, yellow-green, lustrous, titanite crystals, including a twinned, doubly terminated 2.0 cm, glassy, titanite crystal. To top it off, there is even an .8 cm white, feldspar crystal, giving this specimen balance. This is so well composed, I thought it was glued together...its not. A unique gem crystal thumbnail good enough for any collection, and one of my favorites here.
