A beautiful bursting cluster of highly lustrous, jet black prisms of Schorl flaring off of snow white Albite matrix. Most of the crystals are completely pristine, with only a few contacts here and there. The dramatic nature of the piece is certainly unusual for Pakistan, as one does not often seen multiple crystals in such an aesthetic orientation on matrix like this one. The high quality of the crystals with their striking trigonal terminations create a beautiful full sized miniature specimen that would make a great addition to any collection.
