OKO-214

OKO-214    Muscovite     Last Day Pocket Pit, II, Emmons Quarry, Greenwood, Maine.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  This is a really strange crystal of mica.  Right shape but no apparent cleavage planes visible as one would expect.  Maybe a pseudomorph but I would not know by what.  In any case, in is a floater with no damage measuring 1.5 x 1.2 x 1 cm.  The terminal pinnicoid faces are lustrous but prism faces are lacking any luster.  Interesting.  $35
