The top of this portion of a pegmatite cavity shows a lining of sharp schorl crystals, mica crystals and feldspar crystals. The largest, terminated schorl crystal is 13mm long but there are lots of smaller ones on the specimen. That light patch on the top is not a mica crystal but just light reflecting from a very lustrous face! An unusual specimen from Nova Scotia!
