Description

There was already one remarkable discovery last year, but this new material is much better – better habit and better intensity of yellow color. The very best discovery of brucite ever done in Pakistan - and brucite is generally are! This particular specimen shows an isolated crystal on matrix! The color is very intense and assemble is aesthetic! Most specimen I saw show only intergrown crystals, so an isolated one is really remarkable! Brucite consists of uncountable sharp and lustrous steps! Forntside is fine, backside shows contacts. the discovery was small, not much material was available. Really a good opportunity to get a fine specimen. No significant damages to report.
