- Parisite-(Ce) and Microcline with Quartz
- Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 6.8 x 5.3 cm
- Mount Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi
- Ex. Herb Obodda
This surprisingly large, well-terminated 4.5 cm Parisite-Ce crystal sits perfectly on a cluster of Microcline! Parisite is very rare for this famous, important REE-rich locale. The cream-colored Parisite is well-formed, in good condition, and exceptional for its size from any location, actually. The numerous, gray-white Microclines are euhedral, range up to 1.7 cm, and they have fantastic red fluorescence. The Quartz crystals add a nice accent, as well. On balance, this is a superb and rarely matched specimen, quite rare for the locality and surprisingly good in display aesthetics.
