PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

The minerals found in Zomba Mountain, associated with the Zomba Plateau in Malawi, exhibit a rich diversity in intricate arrangements and associations. Dominated by Orthoclase as a primary matrix, the region showcases an array of Smokey Quartz, Aegirine, and Zircon as the most prevalent species. These deposits span across the area, displaying various habits and forms. Smokey Quartz retrieved from this region ranges from dark gemmy to morion and pitch-black, often featuring Aegirine inclusions, with less frequent occurrences of Riebeckite and Rutile inclusions. Recent discoveries have revealed Green Chlorite inclusions or phantoms within pockets. Aegirine occurs in distinct forms, appearing as either black shiny or green fibrous single crystals or complex clusters, with classic terminations more commonly observed than acicular terminations. While Zomba specimens might not always possess conventional beauty, they are perpetually intriguing due to their complexity and the fascinating formative processes they represent. Notably, a significant portion of specimens in Zomba displays self-healing characteristics. Zomba stands out as one of our most cherished localities worldwide. Price is grade dependant.
