SOLD Fluornatromicrolite with Topaz on Cleavelandite
stock #SOLD 18.1-771
Urandu Mine, Shigar Valley, Skardu District
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
4.7 x 3.4 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $0

A superb gemmy Microlite crystal with very lustrous faces and good color. These were tested to be Fluornatromicrolite but they are also often labeled as "Microlite group" which is a bit less exact. No matter the name, the quality and large size is exceptional and the addition of glassy clear Topaz on the specimen adds some interest too. It is rare to see a crystal so perfect and at 1.5 CM it ranks as a giant for this usually non esthetic specie. From the Urandu mine finds of 2017, this is as fine as has ever been found in Pakistan and for that matter worldwide.
