Pre Tucson

A large, super dense and rich forest of sharp needle crystals covering matrix. Scholzite is a fairly rare Phosphate that is only seen in sizable specimens from Reaphook Hill (Australia). From the world's best find of this specie in the 1960 to early 70 era this is a modern classic and a super fine specimen. From all other localities Scholzite is usually only seen as micro specimens. Overall in excellent condition which is amazing considering the delicacy of this piece, bruises only at periphery. Crystals exceed 1 CM which is quite sizable. This fine quality is only available from old collection dispersal. Ex collection Ara T. Dildilian with label.

Scholzite - exceptional fine crystal sprays
stock #23.FC-094
Reaphook Hill, Flinders Ranges
South Aegean, Australia
7.3 x 6.1 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $2950
Spring 23

A remarkable and pristine example of this rare Phosphate from what is unquestionably the best locality for the specie (Reaphook Hill, Australia). This has the very best esthetics and coverage of perfect slender crystals we have seen, including top collections and museums. It certainly is among the very top specimens of the specie. These crystals average 1 CM and the radiating structures are up to 3.3 CM in diameter. These were found in the 1960-70 era, nothing since has been seen. Pieces of this quality are only available from old collections.
