Natural Large Green Fuchsite & Blue Kyanite Specimens x 2 from Karoi, Zimbabwe

R 732.00 ZAR
This is a unique range of specimens from Zimbabwe which have variable inclusions with Kyanite crystals exposed in stunning green Fuchsite. This is a very rare mineral batch from a very inaccessible region of Africa. The crystals have variable gemmy clarity with minor traces of Mica in association. A very nice and soft Fuchsite matrix which can be worked off to have better exposure. ALSO Kyanite is typically a blue aluminosilicate mineral, usually found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. Kyanite in metamorphic rocks generally indicates pressures higher than four kilobars. This is a stunning range of specimens from Zimbabwe which have variable inclusions with Kyanite crystals exposed in quartzite like matrix and often associated to small pyrope garnets in the matrix, but not in all instances. This is a very rare mineral batch from a very inaccessible region of Africa. The crystals have variable gemmy clarity. A very nice and fairly soft fragile matrix. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
