Usually I prefer matrix-specimens, the paragenesis often is very interesting and gives information about the specimens history. But sometimes you have to deal with single crystals - which doesn’t mean that I don’t like it!
This kind of zunyite was new to me, I haven’t found any matrix pieces of this kind. There is only a few of them available. The specimen shows two intergrown crystals with an enormous size of 1,8 cm and 1,5 cm , very impressive. The surface show a satainy luster, the crystals are completly undamaged.
