Featuring clinozoisite crystals standing up off the matrix, this piece hosts a beautiful twinned clinozoisite at the centre. The crystals are sharp, translucent and lustrous. In excellent condition, no damage and stands perfectly for display as photographed. A very good clinozoisite!
About These Clinozoisite Specimens
These clinozoisite specimens were found in 2017. I understand that the workings where they were found are only operational on a sporadic basis. The specific zone from which these specimens were recovered is apparently now done, and they have encountered a bit of epidote as the work has advanced beyond the clinozoisite zone. Excellent display specimens of clinozoisite are generally uncommon – one thinks of the famous finds at Alchuri in the Shigar Valley in Pakistan, and few other localities come to mind. These clinozoisite specimens are different – they are all clustered groups of crystals.
