SCH1 Albite, Topaz, Tourmaline var. Schorl
Skardu, Northern Areas, Pakistan
12.0x 11.0x 9.0 cm

Perhaps one of the most abundant minerals to come from Pakistan is schorl.  But this pieces is exceptional among the literally thousands that I have seen. 

This specimen has a huge schorl crystal , 12 cm in length and almost 4 cm in diameter that is resting on a large albite crystal, fully terminated, just like the schorl itself.  There are a couple small topazes to 1.5 cm around the base, as well as numerous little albite rosettes.

  This is about as good as schorl gets, and a bargain at this price.
