Aegirine, Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Mt Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 2.2 x 1.8 cm
A GEM, doubly terminated, smoky quartz crystal beautifully attached to the side of a PRISTINE, 4-sided, highly lustrous, jet-black aegirine crystal and nicely complimented by smaller aegirines from recent finds at Mt. Malosa, Malawi. A couple of the sidecar aegirines have broken ends, but certainly not detracting to this very aesthetic specimen.
