Stunning Nepheline crystals from Tafilalet, Morocco. Nephaline is a rare feldspathoid mineral that has a hexagonal crystal system. Crystals typically occur as short 6 sided prisms that terminate with a flat basal plane, as evidenced by our specimens. Some of our specimens exhibit rare massive black garnet but this is no guarantee. One of the key diagnostic features of nepheline is the ease at which is deteriorates in acid, this can result in leaving a once clear crystal looking cloudy on the surface; this can be seen in some of our specimens. We supply 2" x 2" and 3" x 2" samples and each specimen is supplied in a card tray with an information label. This rare and unique mineral would be a welcome addition to any collection.
