Description

Rare and superb group of three zunyite crystals (Al₁₃Si₅O₂₀ (OH, F) Cl) with truncated edges, on hematite matrix, discovered in 2018 in Iran.

The crystals are lustrous, of a beautiful brown-reddish colour and with inclusions of hematite flakes. They are all in perfect condition.

Specimens on matrix are rarer than isolated crystals because they do not usually hold in place in the hematite matrix.

Crystals : 1,2 cm / 1 cm / 0,7 cm
