DESCRIPTION

The north slope of the Eiskögele mountain belongs to the most dangerous areas for climbing and hunting minerals in Austria. That's why specimens from this location are rare. I obtained this specimen from a local dealer in Austria. I saw it in his display and was facinated from the first second! It is different from others as it's bizzare grown and developed as a floater. The sphene is beautiful, sharp crystallized with very good luster and an intersive green color. The max. size is 1,7 cm. The matrix consists of crystallized adularia, that is partly covered by dark green Chlorite. It gives an additional contrast and higher aesthetics.
