Schorl With Quartz And Albite
Cabinet, 11.9 x 7.8 x 5.5 cm
Pala Chief Mine, San Diego County, California, USA
Ex. William (Bill) Larson
A dramatic large, unrepaired specimen of fat schorl crystals accented with gemmy quartz and stark white albite blades. It is complete all around save for an unusual contact spot on the lefthand side (shown forward in 2nd photo). This would be considered exceptional for the locality and a great schorl by any standard from a US locale.
