228 Epidote and Diopside
Falin, Ossola Valley, Piedmont, Italy
Olive oil-green colored prisms of epidote which are associated with minor blue-green diopside on matrix. The faces of the epidote are highly glossy – also the faces of the diopside. The largest epidote crystal measures 1 cm and that with excellent transparency! The diopsides are very transparent too, with this great blue-green color!
A great reference piece of this hard to find material from the Italian Alps. No significant damage to report!
