ASTROPHYLITE SPECIMEN IN MATRIX
This is a natural slab of rough mined in Kola Russia. It is a hydrous potassium iron titanium silicate mineral. The matrix contrasts with the golden brown needles. You can cut this natural or you can stabilize the material before polishing. Some of the matrix can be soft.
Photo taken with the stone dry.
admin adjustment seller cleartly stated rough and image taken in water and are not polished The photo showed these as being sparkly. They arrived rusty and ugly, in no way polished. Very disappointed.
QUALITY ROUGH Reply:
photo is taken with stones wet as per description they are rough pieces that need polishing , pls read description correctly
Gorgeous colour with great translucency. Lovely pieces, couple of flaws, but will keep one as specimen & freeform polish the others to set. And Thanks for the little Pyrite gift- though it looks more like Chalcopyrite??.
