Item Description

An elegant cluster of gemmy and lustrous, olive-green to olive-brown, parallel-growth, doubly terminated, tabular, clinozoisite crystals from recent finds in Pakistan. Hair-like needles of actinolite variety byssolite are nestled in crevasses on one side. The healed crystals with horizontal clinozoisite, sculptural quality and crystal size diversity are very noteworthy. Complete all-around, with only modest periphery wear. Both sides are strikingly different! Excellent material.
