Item Description

A NIFTY and very showy arfvedsonite pseudomorph AND overgrowth specimen from recent finds at Mt. Malosa, Malawi. First, this is an aesthetic, two-sided specimen, with the two, nicely angled crystals. Second, the crystals are pseudomorphs of arfvedsonite after sharp aegirine crystals. And third, the nifty thing, is that a second generation overgrowth of gemmy, sparkly, green arfvedsonite needles has covered most of both of the pseudos. One side of the upright pseudo does not have the second generation needles. Really an EXCELLENT and UNUSUAL pseudo/overgrowth specimen from this well-known locale.
