A really neat and interesting, curved, CABINET schorl crystal from recent finds in the Shigar Valle of Pakistan. Tectonic forces during crystal growth caused this large, parallel-growth schorl to bend. The crystal is highly lustrous and striated and has multiple, matte, pinacoidal terminations. This very showy and unusual piece is complete all-around and is nearly pristine, having only one broken termination on a sidecar crystal.
