Clinochlore and Adularia, Xenotime -Y, Rutile etc. (Ref: 20-FC-006-(9885))

Fieud Alp, Fontana, Central St Gotthard Massif, Leventina, Ticino, Switzerland
93mm x 63mm x 62mm
Clinochlore is not often seen as a display quality specie, it is usually a minor associate or coating of other minerals. Here the Clinochlore crystals are sizable, well-defined and lustrous. The prismatic and sheaf-like crystals are unlike the more normal flat micaceous forms. The dark green crystals contrast well with the transparent to translucent white Adularia. Some micro species are noted in spaces between large crystals, most noticeable are gemmy Xenotime-Y with a yellow to orange color. A few spots of bright red Rutile crystals are also seen with magnification. Ex. Eric Asselborn collection, (France), this is a superb older Alpine specimen and exceptional for the specie, locality and habit.
