Item Description

Hydroxylherderite, an uncommon Ca-Be phosphate, is usually found as a pegmatite mineral formed during late stage hydrothermal deposition. It is rare from the famous pegmatites of Afghanistan and is very rare from the well-known Pech pegmatite field. The stout, well-formed, very glassy, translucent green prism is wonderfully accented with a cleavelandite "sail" on the top. The high luster on the satin finish prism faces adds character. RARE, excellent and highly desirable hydroxylherderite from Pech. It also has surprising purple translucence.
