Item #10466
$ 6,500
Morganite with Quartz and Microlite on Clevelandite
Pech, Kunar, Afghanistan

This 12 x 9.5 x 9 cm cabinet specimen features a morganite that is 5 cm across and 2.8 cm wide. Below the two smoky quartz crystals, a small yellow microlite is tucked in between white blades of cleavelandite. The tabular morganite has frosted side faces and super clear, super transparent terminal faces. The morganite is perfect ... the natural fractures you see were caused by intergrowth with the cleavelandite. I bought this 10 years ago in Namak Mandi on one of my trips to Pakistan. I don't think I can buy it again today at this price even in Pakistan.
