Killa Saifullah District, Balochistan, Pakistan
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.3 x 3.1 cm
A lemon-yellow cluster of intergrown crystals of stunningly lustrous brucite, that looks like a tree with a canopy over it. It is a large miniature/small cabinet piece, that just looks shocking on a shelf. This new find simply redefines the species, and pieces such as this, which are 1 in 500 or more in the finds that have trickled out over the last year, show why simply from the photo. this piece is complete all around! Highly elegant, this piece just fits the word "ethereal" for the combination of color and curves. It is as fine an example of the species in this size as I could imagine and is extremely rare in this quality, even from these newly surprising and productive finds, which are mined one small pocket at a time (over the last years). Either side is worthy of display - a matter of personal choice, only.
