SCH1 Albite, Topaz, Tourmaline var. Schorl
Skardu, Northern Areas, Pakistan
12.0x 11.0x 9.0 cm
$1700

Perhaps one of the most abundant minerals to come from Pakistan is schorl.  But this pieces is exceptional among the literally thousands that I have seen. 

This specimen has a huge schorl crystal , 12 cm in length and almost 4 cm in diameter that is resting on a large albite crystal, fully terminated, just like the schorl itself.  There are a couple small topazes to 1.5 cm around the base, as well as numerous little albite rosettes.

  This is about as good as schorl gets, and a bargain at this price.
