Andriamena, Majunga Province, Madagascar
Small Cabinet, 7.9 x 4.3 x 4.1 cm
In this specimen, which is a floater with contact-terminations at both ends, it seems almost as if the crystal follows a spiral growth pattern in its formation (an illusion, but nevertheless the first appearance). The intricate etching and 3-dimensionality really make it visually interesting, as well as a rare form of heliodor. An extremely fine example of this rare heliodor pocket from the mid-1990s, that is totally unique!
