Fluorite on Albite from Shigar Valley, Skardu, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk609a.jpg] Fluorite on Albite from Shigar Valley, Skardu, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk609b.jpg] Fluorite on Albite from Shigar Valley, Skardu, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk609c.jpg] Fluorite on Albite from Shigar Valley, Skardu, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk609d.jpg]

Two gorgeous glassy and gemmy crystals of teal green Fluorite from Shigar Valley. The largest crystal is over 3cm in size and transparent enough to see through to the matrix below. Undamaged in pristine condition, the crystals contrast well against the white Albite. Shigar Fluorite are not common and MINDAT shows only 26 examples. This one, in my opinion, is more aesthetic than any of those shown. Ex. Tim Sherburn collection.

Clusters of sky blue Hemimorphite over darker blue/green Rosasite from recent finds in the Congo. The Hemimorphite forms satiny hemispherical mounds. Most found were solid druses of Hemimorphite without Rosasite and specimens such as this with more isolated clusters on the Rosasite were uncommon. Highly aesthetic specimen for the find.
