An unusual specimen from an obscure location in the Swiss Alps. The Titanite crystals are well formed with a high luster and light brown color. The Tourmaline crystals have an unusual habit with bundles of sub crystals which in places are aligned in opposing orientation giving an overall spherical like habit. There are also some well formed, white colored Albite crystals with a high luster. There is also grey/green colored Ripidolite with a moss like habit and one small, thin, elongated, golden colored Rutile crystal.
