Item #10549 $ 45.00
Schorl
Xinjiang Autonomous Region, China

A nice 8.3 x 4.3 x 4.3 cm schorl, double terminated. A few dings/nicks on one termination, nearly perfect on the other. It looks to me as though this piece was found encased in mica. There is still some adhering mica flakes, and the pattern on the sides is very similar to pieces I have found in Connecticut surrounded by mica. I haven't seen many of these pieces from China. A nice display piece and a nice size!
