For Arfvedsonite, a rare Sodium amphibole, this is about as good as it gets. A lustrous, sharp 8.5 cm crystal with great luster and a sharp termination. A few small microcline crystals add some contrast. A super example of an unusual mineral from the peralkaline granite pegmatites of Mount Malosa, Malawi.
