    MICROLINE, SCHORL and ALBITE
    Nyet-Bruk, Braldu Valley
    Skardu District, Baltistan, Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas)
    Pakistan
    2.41 x 2.21 x 2.19 inches (6.13 x 5.62 x 5.58 cm)

    This outstanding collector specimen of milky white Microline not only includes a handful of pristine crystals of Feldspar, but it is aesthetically placed on a matrix of Albite and Quartz. It also exhibits a cluster of tiny Schorl Tourmaline crystals near the base. While the largest crystal steals the show, the second in size exhibits the crystal twinning form so common for this mineral. The underside cavity indicates that the matrix may be a pseudomorph where there is to be found a pronounced terminated crystal of Quartz.
