Roweite with Olshanskyite, Andradite and Calcite

EF89AF9: Aggregates of laminar Roweite crystals of great size and quality for what has been known of this species. They are on matrix, with colorless and translucent Olshanskyite crystals and small Andradite crystals. The Roweite crystals, that are well differentiated, have a light creamy color with very well defined faces and edges. The quality of the specimens is undoubtedly superior to what was previously known, both for the individuality of the crystals and for their sharpness, but also for the size of the crystals and their association with first class Olshanskyite which makes them deserving to be in the best private collections and museums. We have analyzed specimens to confirm the identity of the species and we will send a copy of the different species to buyers.
