Item Description

The Killa Saifullah District in Pakistan in recent years has been the source of some of the most breathtaking specimens of Brucite ever found. The key features of what makes these pieces so special is their intense yellow color. Yellow is a rare hue for Brucite, and the saturation of the color in these specimens is about as strong as anything you'll see for the species. And if you throw in the fact that these Brucites have formed attractive, and often gemmy crystallized groups, and you have incredibly desirable specimens for species collectors and display collectors alike. This attractive specimen hosts semi-spherical, lustrous, translucent, glowing yellow groups of Brucite with very minor matrix attached on the back. The yellow color is quite strong, and if you've seen these pieces in person, you know how vibrant they can be. If you collect minerals of Pakistan, you can't afford to miss out on this really eye-catching material. Yellow is not terribly common in the mineral world, and a piece with this intense yellow hue is nearly impossible to find in most species. There might be many of these on the market right now, but they will dry up quicker than you realize, so be sure to pick up one while they're available. Priced in the inventory at $1,200.
