Epidote is one of the most well known of all the Alpine mineral species and one of the most sought after collectable minerals. Recently some of the finest epidote specimens in the world have been coming out of Pakistan and this sample confirms the trend; this specimen is composed by a highly lustrous, gemmy green Epidote superbly towering over many smaller Epidote crystals grown on thick hair of Byssolite, indeed a very interesting piece for aesthetics and association.
