Kyanite and Staurolite
Kyanite and Staurolite from Pizzo Forno, Tessin, Switzerland
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description A superb locality piece consisting of a combination of terminated, translucent to transparent, sky blue Kyanite crystals to 4.5 cm , accenting deep reddish-brown Staurolite crystals to 2.75 cm. They have grown in a matrix of sugary white, massive Quartz. The Staurolite is especially fine, for the form and translucency of the crystal. All this, plus, coming from an old European alpine vein!

Dimensions 7.7 x 4.1 x 2.2 cm
Specimen Grade C
