柱星叶石-Neptunite


Neptunite is opaque except in minute fragments, from which tiny faceted stones (under 1 carat) of deep red color have been cut. The color intensity limits the practical size of gemstones; opaque blackish stones in the 20-30 carat range could be cut but would not display the lovely red color neptunite displays in smaller fragments.

虽然肉眼看上去柱星叶石一般是表面呈玻璃光泽的不透明黑色柱状体,但实际上她在微观上呈深红色,我手上这块矿标在强光直射下可以看到表面有酒红色裂纹

柱星叶石的资料是真的少,Rock & MineralMindatGemsociety上几乎都只有几句寥寥带过,可能她真的没什么用吧,但是在灯箱里对着她找角度拍照以及简单的做个封面海报是真的快乐,业余的小快乐 /捂脸

最后还是希望明年能收到一块柱星叶石伴生蓝锥矿的矿标😂
