Description

Rare zunyite crystal (Al₁₃Si₅O₂₀ (OH, F) Cl) with truncated edges, on hematite and clay matrix, discovered in 2018 in Iran.

The crystal is lustrous, of a beautiful brown-reddish colour and with inclusions of hematite flakes. The crystal size is very nice for the species (1,4 cm).

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