Epidote on Byssolite
stock #AC 204
Knappenwand, Untersulzbachal Valley
Hohe Tauern Mts. Salzburg,
7.2 x 4.8 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
From the historic and most highly regarded locality for Epidote this is a good example of the byssolite association and an inexpensive way to own a true classic! The Epidotes reach 1.5 CM set on a sparkling mound of Byssolite fibers. There is damage on the epidotes, they are not the gemmy crystals this locale is known for, but the Byssolite is very attractive. This piece is from a 1930's vintage collection and is very reasonably priced.
