Aegirine, Feldspar Group
Mt Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.3 x 3.2 cm
A fine cluster of lustrous, jet-black aegirine crystals on feldspar matrix dominated by the stunning, 4.2 cm, four-sided spear-point. The aegirines have beautiful green highlights, common to the species. One of the smaller aegirines has an interesting little quartz needle embedded in the termination. The termination of the large aegirine is pristine. Very highly representative of the species and locality.
