Astrophyllite is a rare hydrous potassium iron titanium silicate which in this small cabinet specimen forms highly lustrous metallic laths of golden bronze in flat radial sprays and intergrown arrays.  This excellent and rich specimen is from the Khibiny Massif in the Kola Peninsula of Russia.  All faces of a foliated Quartzite matrix are densely covered and pervaded with the lath-like acicular Astrophyllite blades which can measure up to at least 1.5 cm.  This splendid example is accompanied with two previous collector’s labels.
