Divergent schorl crystals stand out upon a bed of quartz and matrix partly made up of almandine (see bottom of specimen). The schorl itself is made up of a solid array of fine crystals radiating from a point, all with great terminations. This specimen comes from a very remote locality, The Sceptre Claims, at Emerald Lake in the Yukon Territory. The specimen was collected by rappelling down steep cliffs in order to access pockets of mineral crystals. This is a fantastic cabinet specimen and from a Canadian classic locality!
