Indicolite with Stibiotantalite and Albite
This specimen brings together two of the rarer members of a complex pegmatite association of minerals. A navy blue crystal core of elbaite var, indicolite morphed into a city scape of pastel blue, translucent, pyramidal, terminations. Flanking the indicolite is an acicular spray of snow white albite and a complex crystal of very lustrous, golden-brown, stibiotantalite that even emits red highlights, The indicolite measures 3.0 cm in length and the stibiotantalite is 2.5 cm across. This is truly, a fine and rare combo specimen.
