Deep limey-bottle-green Epidote crystals form an intergrown cluster measuring 3.3 x 1.9 x 1.4 cm, the top surface of which is richly coated with hair-like acicular crystals of bluish teal-green Byssolite, a fibrous variety of the Amphibole Supergroup.  Often, Byssolite lies within the ferroactinolite-actinolite-tremolite series.  This interesting specimen is from Knappenwand in the Untersulzbach Valley, about 90 km SW of Salzburg, Austria.  A few small clusters of white to greyish-cream Adularia crystals are scattered over the specimen.
