ID: CC21927
Väyrynenite is an extremely rare manganese-beryllium phosphate first discovered in 1939 but not described until 1954.  It is a species seldom seen for sale or in private collections.  This two-sided large miniature is an outstanding example, covered with hundreds of coral pink gemmy Väyrynenite crystals.  From Shengus in the Haramosh Mountains of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, the Väyrynenite forms delicate, slender prisms of up to 1.5 cm long, acicular in habit and completely covering a thin triangular-shaped plate of Quartz matrix measuring approximately 9.3 x 4.0 x 5.5 cm along each of its three major edges.  The Väyrynenite prisms display feint vertical striations on the prism faces and terminate in a spear-shaped point.  Two small plates of milky Quartz protrude out from the specimen’s longest edge.  Have no doubt, this is an outstanding specimen of Väyrynenite that will display superbly in any collection of fine miniatures.
