Here on this specimen, nestled between the loving arms of a beautiful, sea-green cluster of Amazonite, lies a rare member of the Mica group known as Zinnwaldite. It can only be distinguished from Muscovite through chemical laboratory analysis, as it simply has a considerably higher percentage of iron and magnesium. It is in the standard Mica "book" form, and maybe looks a tad darker than Muscovite. Hitching a ride is a smidgen of Cleavelandite, a form of Albite Feldspar. This is the only one we have- avoid the free-for-all.
