Item Description

A classic Sturmanite featuring fine quality, GEMMY, tabular, hexagonal stark yellow color crystals with sharp faces and good form measuring up to 4 mm on matrix. Some of the crystals show interesting "phantom"-esque zoning when backlit. These pieces are becoming more and more difficult to find, especially in attractive, well crystallized specimens such as this. From the collection of John Arnaud, formerly of Westcliffe, Colorado.
