- Titanite (twinned)
- Miniature, 4.1 x 3.3 x 2.8 cm
- Tormiq valley, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
- Ex. Herb Obodda
Tormiq is one of the classic "Alpine-type" Titanite localities in Pakistan, and this area has produced some superb crystals of the species, including outstanding twins. This specimen features a sharp, lustrous, bright yellow-green, twinned crystal of Titanite that is gemmy to translucent. The Titanite is attached beautifully to the sugary matrix, creating a very attractive miniature with good balance and aesthetics. These pieces are some of the most difficult to obtain from Pakistan. This superb miniature from the travels of Herb Obodda over there, is balanced, poised, and pristine.
