Epidote -classic Austrian
Knappenwand, Untersulzbachal Valley
Hohe Tauern Mts. Salzburg, Austria
3.3 x 2.8 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $360


A choice small miniature of Knappenwand Epidote crystals perched on a sliver of matrix. Showing brilliant glassy luster, these are translucent with a dark yellow green when backlit but more green-black in normal light. In excellent condition the free standing crystals are just under 2 CM tall. All the crystals are in the classic alignment as they are standing in a tight parallel row. Every few years a few more Epidote are recovered from this most classic Alpine locale. These mountains do not give up these treasures often.
