Description
Locality:

Class: 
Single Crystal
Size Range: 
Miniature (4.5-7 cm)
Size: 
5 × 4.4 × 3.3 cm
Description

A fantastic 5cm twin from the latest discovery exhibiting mirror like surfaces with a more high gloss luster than is typically seen- this piece is twice as shiny as any of my others. Well defined twinning zones are easily recognizable as lines of separation that extend across many individual surfaces.

Crystal edges are super sharp and contact zones are fully mineralized sometimes with muscovite crystals still attached. This crystal is near perfect with a small contact chip long an edge and under the base.
