Item Description

A wonderful, sharp, lustrous, GEM/gemmy, golden / root beer color, TWINNED prism of Clinozoisite with additional thin, prismatic crystals on the side. Good quality and worthwhile for the species, and VERY difficult to find such an attractive and THICK twin. The piece is from the famous "Alpine"-type clefts in Pakistan, which in many ways are identical to those of the Alps in Europe, which produce very similar specimens. A great miniature sized display specimen of this classic material.
