Item Description

This is a good thumbnail sized specimen of Eudialyte from the famous Khibiny Massif featuring a couple deep raspberry red Eudialyte crystals measuring up to 1.5 cm with black Aegirine and white Nepheline matrix. These are not nearly as common the market as they were 25-35 years ago, and if you collect Russian classics, this is a must have as they are iconic and desirable. The main crystal on the front is undamaged, but the crystal on the back has a small contact where it was attached to the pocket wall. From the collection of Shields Flynn with a label from Ernie Schlichter
