A terrific cabinet specimen composed of lustrous glassy lime-green Titanite crystals scattered over a strongly foliated matrix of sub-mm, snow-white Adularia crystals.  This lovely specimen is from the picturesque area around Untersulzbachtal in the Hohe Tauern National Park near Salzburg, Austria.  The Adularia crystals, a variety of Orthoclase, form a very porous yet strong matrix.  The Adularia is speckled with micro worm-like dusky olive-green Clinochlore crystals with a dull, earthy lustre.  The Titanite crystals measure to 1.5 x 1.0 x 0.5 cm, are nicely terminated, translucent lime-green and have a bright lustre with the odd crystal appearing greasy.  A great display specimen.
