Muscovite (pseudo Cordierite) (Ref: JSI-03)

Kameoka City, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki Region, Honshu Island, Japan
17mm x 15mm x 10mm
minID: X8H-3GV
$38
A silvery Muscovite pseudomorph to 5 mm in flower-like form is set in contrasting dark, fine-grained metamorphic rock (hornfels). Originally, these started as a trapiche-like spray of Cordierite crystals radiating out from a single crystal of Indialite, both MgFe-aluminosilicate dimorphs, and subsequently replaced by mica. Known as Cerasite, Sakura ishi, or cherry-blossom stone, these rarities are highly prized in Japan, and this locality is the only place they are found.
