Herderite (Hydroxylherderite) on Microcline (Ref: AX-14-368)

Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
55mm x 40mm x 35mm
minID: DY5-5X8
From the late 1990s vintage finds, a very distinctive, doubly terminated gem crystal perched on a crystal section of Microcline. The 3 CM long Herderite is in perfect condition and shows textbook form. Excellent esthetics and a slight color change from blueish to greenish in different light sources. A far better than average piece, and there has been nothing new on the market for several years.
