Scapolite Phlogopite Mica
Der-e-zu Mine, Sar-e-Sang, Badakhshan, Afghanistan
31 x 21 x 11mm

A very unusual scapolite crystal from Afghanistan's northerastern-most province.  This crystal comes from the same area as the lapis lazuli mines, and differs substantially from the usually purple (often treated) examples that are often seen these days.  I selected this crystal because the overall form made for a great thumbnail, but also because the phlogopite inclusions made it subtly different from the cookie cutter purples ones.  Seeing a specimen from this area attributed to a specific mine, rather than a general mining region, was also somewhat unusual.
