Eosphorite with Tourmaline Topaz Albite Stibiotantalite Manganotantalit
Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan
92 x 66 x 56mm

Largest Eosphorite Crystal: 1.1 cm. Vayrynenite Crystal: 0.2 cm.



To say that this piece has a lot going on is an understatement. This specimen hosts SEVEN species, and is truly a delight to view. Honestly, there is no one characteristic of the piece that stands out more than another in my opinion. There are several attractive pastel orange color Eosphorite crystals which are sitting on white Albite (var: Cleavelandite) crystals that are coating a thick, prismatic dark blue and black Tourmaline crystal. The piece also hosts a few gemmy Topaz crystals plus a small dark red {Stibiotantalite? or Manganotantalite?} crystal, PLUS one of the Topaz crystals actually has {Stibiotantalite? or Manganotantalite?} inclusions! Additionally, there are some small, dark brown, rosette-shaped spherical aggregates of an unknown mineral (possibly a phosphate?) on the piece as well. Last but not least, the upper portion of the specimen features a small, but very bright pink crystal of Vayrynenite! It is not often that pegmatite specimens have this many associations on the same piece, let alone the great mix of rarity with colorful more common species. One final note, it appears that this piece might possibly be repaired towards the base, but it is glued to an acrylic stand, and I cannot tell for sure if it is only a crack, or a genuine repair. Nonetheless, one does not see many specimens like this one from Pakistan or any other pegmatite district. Enjoy.
