Zinnwald, Erzebirge, Czech Republic
This thumbnail piece consists of a misshapen Zinnwaldite blade. The blade is in fair condition and appears to be a shard from a larger crystal. It shows no definable form, though it is definitely crystalline in nature, and has the classic brown color and pearly, micaceous luster of its specie. It is also dimly transparent. There is no host rock present, and the piece is affixed inside a plastic thumbnail box with a removable putty.
