Asbestos ps. Calcite
Riffelkees, Stubach valley, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Austria
Miniature, 4.6 x 4.0 x 1.7 cm
Ex. Kay Robertson
Sharp, complete replacement of a large Calcite rhomb by Asbestos. The Asbestos is an appealing, light, grey-honeydew green, with a superb luster that almost glows. The preserved rhombic habit is excellent, and the striations on the faces are well-defined and attractive. Overall, this is an aesthetic, high-quality pseudo. I have never seen another. Ex Dr Werner Lieber collection to Kay in 1964
