Item Description

A strikingly aesthetic, 3-dimensional, jackstraw cluster of jet-black aegirines (to 4.0 cm) beautifully accented with a few, sharp, white microcline crystals. Scattered about in clusters and as isolated crystals are sharp, light brown zircon crystals to 2 mm. The luster, form, and sharpness of aegirine crystals is excellent. Most people consider this locale to be the world's finest source for the species. Essentially a floater, with only a couple of contacted crystals. Sculptural and fine combination material
