Description

This is an exquisite little specimen. A cluster of brilliantly-lustrous aegirine crystals is perched upon white microcline Рthey look black, but upon close inspection under strong light one can see that they are the darkest green. The main aegirine is doubly-terminated. In excellent condition, these cystals are pristine, except for one tiny chip on the left crystal and a small chip at the back of the specimen.  Stands perfectly for display as photographed. This one is really super.
