Description

    Datolite
    1st Sovetskii Mine, Dal'negorsk
    Tetjuche, Kavalerovo Mining Dist.
    Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region
    Russia
    5.51 x 4.02 x 2.52 inches (14.00 x 10.20 x 6.40 cm)

    As Datolite specimens go, this is an absolutely huge example of the Borosilicate mineral. The stout group features six or more glassy crystals of a pale green hue, one doubly-terminated, that measures 4 inches (10 cm) in length with several over 2 inches (5 cm). One displays an odd "notch" in its termination, and there are only a few miniscule nicks. Besides the Datolite, there is a small dusting of Apophyllite on several of the crystal faces.
    Offered at no reserve.

    Provenance: Western Minerals [Hoppel #D0466]

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
