Location: Aydun

Turkey
Description: Large single Diaspore crystal with typical ragged/contacted ends. Good gem sections in areas. This crystal displays multiple signs of fracturing and rehealing (noted by lighter colored lateral lines) resulting in a naturally 'bent' crystal, the same phenomenon that is sometimes seen in tourmaline crystals. Gems cut from Diaspore crystals are marketed as 'Zultanite'. Crystals are now very rare and no longer being found. This crystal was likely mined long ago and came to me from a gem dealer in Thailand. Unusual and rare.
