Bustamite on Apophyllite-(Kf)

ID: CC2902

A marvelous specimen of 'Fuzzy' Bustamite on Apophyllite from the Broken Hill Ore-body. The specimen probably comes from one of the fracture zones associated with the Ore-body. The Apophyllite forms well developed intergrown tabular crystals measuring to 2.5cm. They are gemmy and colourless on one side of the specimen, with bright lustre and faint striations along the crystal edges. On the other side of the specimen, the Apophyllite is heavily included by lustrous golden hair-like Bustamite crystals to over 1cm. This gives the Apophyllite a slight pinkish tint due to the inclusions. A great specimen of Bustamite with Apophyllite.
