Gwindel Quartz

Alchuri, Shigar District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan

In our opinion, some of the best Pakistanese alpine-type minerals come from the Alchuri area. This gwindel is a perfect example. It’s a perfect floater, fullé recrystallized and with some adularia on its base. The luster and water-clear transparency are amazing, well beyond the quality of most of the gwindels we’ve seen coming from Pakistan. The typical gwindel twist is well visible when you look the specimen from the top (see picture 2). Size : 67mm x 46mm x 30 mm

Ref. GW027 – 850€
