Yellow Scapolite Crystal from Tanzania! i love Scapolite :) A stunning crystal of gemmy Scapolite with shallow, pyramidal termination. It’s a sharp crystal in a deep yellow color, highly lustrous, typical for the locality. The crystals come from small outcrops in marble lenses mined by locals. This is an exceptional specimen from this highly regarded, though somewhat mysterious locality.origin: Morogoro marble occurrence, Uluguru Mts (Uruguru Mts), Morogoro Region, Tanzania
