This specimen features beautiful clinozoisite crystals of the highest quality from this find – sharp, glassy, highly lustrous, translucent to almost transparent. A couple twinned crystals on the piece. In excellent condition, one tiny incomplete crystal, otherwise pristine. A top-quality clinozoisite – classy and with lots of sparkle.
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.
