Eudidymite with Aegirine and Quartz
 

MR99AL4: A novelty at Munich 2019. Very sharp, doubly-terminated floater crystal of Eudidymite with good terminations and marked parallel growths. The crystal is translucent, white, with pearly luster, accompanied by an Aegirine crystal and a doubly-terminated Quartz crystal, smoky in the terminal areas. Eudidymite rarely appears in such well-defined crystals, which is why the specimens of this find fall into the category of exceptional.
This specimen has been referenced and pictured, as a novelty in Munich 2019 in the magazine "Le Règne Minéral" number 150, page 42. It has been analyzed and we will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.
