10099: Lepidolite
Ibitaira, Bahia, Brazil
Cabinet - 10.0 x 8.2 x 4.6 cm (3.9 x 3.2 x 1.8 inches)
Specimen status: Sold

Lepidolite is not usually considered a collectable species (small/indistinct crystals, etc.) but here we have a rather large, very distinct and sharp, diamond-shaped lepidolite crystal 'book' on feldspar matrix. The crystals group measures 6.9 cm end-to-end, has an appealing layered structure, and good color. Displays nicely without needing a stand. This fine example is free of damage.
