Item Description

Uncommon, and very attractive, specimen of vivid yellow Muscovite crystals growing on crystals of Schorl. The .5 cm Muscovites have lusters that range from velvety to classic adamantine, and their growth along the Schorl crystals (which range up to 2.5 cm) is complete all around. Many of the tips of the Schorls have been broken off, but that actually allows you to see the geometry of the growth. An unusual, and aesthetic, piece.
