Item Description

A fantastic, 100% GEM QUALITY / WATER CLEAR, soft yellow color, striated prismatic crystal of Marialite Scapolite from the Morogoro Region, Tanzania. One of the cool things about gem quality Scapolite crystals is that, the color is much stronger when viewing the crystal down the "c" axis. These crystals came from a find in the 1980s and very little has been seen over the years. If you collect gem crystals, or specifically Scapolites from around the world, do not miss out on your chance to get your hands on a wonderful representation of these beautiful crystals from this fairly obscure locality. From the collection of Shields Flynn with a label from Ernie Schlichter.
