An IMPOSING CABINET Alpine specimen of lustrous, snow-white adularia crystals highlighted by gem-like, very glassy, colorless stilbite crystals on a shard of matrix from a famous Austrian locality - Speibing Gorge, Hollersbach valley. The stilbite crystals reach 5.5 cm and this showy piece is essentially damage-free! Remarkable for such a large specimen. From the collections of noted Alpine collectors, Matias Horner and Rolf Wein. Acquired by Wein in 1976 from Horner.
