Eosphorite from Chamachu, Pakistan

During the Summer of 2007 in Pakistan, a superb find was made of exemplary, gemmy, lustrous, pinkish-orange to yellow-orange Eosphorite crystals. To the best of my knowledge, these specimens represent the best of that find. These specimens host some of the brightest color and finest quality Eosphorite crystals that I have seen from any world locality. There is obviously a strong Manganese presence in these crystals as they have little to no brown overtone whatsoever. With regard to quality, some of the smaller crystals are absolutely water-clear!

Secondly, many of these pieces are associated with several other species on the same specimen, including a few specimens with the highly sought after, very rare and beautiful phosphate, Väyrynenite. Several specimens are associated with Topaz, Tourmaline, Albite, Microcline, Lepidolite, Quartz, and possibly some kind of tantalate (Stibiotantalite or Manganotantalite?). Please note that there are a few specimens with an unidentified species, which will be noted in the descriptions below.

This is a very exciting, albeit limited discovery of these stunning Eosphorite crystals. For the color and quality, they certainly rank among the finest ever found. I purchased these specimens nearly a year ago in anticipation that more would surface, but I have subsequently seen next to nothing since that time. These specimens should excite all phosphate enthusiasts, along with collectors of Pakistani or pegmatite minerals. Please note that the locality Chamachu was the given locality when I purchased the material, and I apologize for not having anything more specific.

Enjoy !!

Eosphorite with Unknown Species on Albite and Microcline from Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan [./EosPak808/EosPak8081a.JPG] Eosphorite with Unknown Species on Albite and Microcline from Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan [./EosPak808/EosPak8081c.JPG] Eosphorite with Unknown Species on Albite and Microcline from Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan [./EosPak808/EosPak8081b.JPG]

Eosphorite with Unknown Species on Albite and Microcline

Locality: Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan

Specimen Size: 10.2 x 7.3 x 3.4 cm (cabinet)
Eosphorite spray: 2.3 x 1.7 cm.


One of the showiest and most dramatic specimens of this material that I have seen featuring a beautiful, translucent, pinkish-orange spray of Eosphorite which is associated with very small (less than 1 mm) spherical aggregates of an unknown brown species (possibly a phosphate?). I have not had this brown material analyzed as I barely have enough for a single sample, and I cannot find anything worth sacrificing on any of the specimens. The spray of Eosphorite is aesthetically sitting on a partial grey-white Microcline crystal which is coated by small white Albite crystals. A very eye-catching display specimen, and simply one of the finest pieces from this find.

Topaz on Albite (var: Cleavelandite) with Eosphorite

Locality: Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan

Specimen Size: 13.3 x 11.0 x 6.1 cm (cabinet)
Largest Topaz crystal: 4.2 x 3.5 cm.


This piece admittedly is not much of an Eosphorite specimen, but truly is a pretty good cabinet size Topaz specimen which is associated with Eosphorite. I must stress that the Topaz crystal looks better in person than the photos would suggest, and it was very difficult to accurately portray this piece in the pictures. It is a very good size, matrix Topaz display specimen for under $1000, which is becoming more and more difficult in todays market.

Eosphorite with Vayrynenite, Tourmaline, Topaz, Albite (var: Cleavelandite), possibly Stibiotantalite or Manganotantalit

Locality: Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan

Specimen Size: 9.2 x 6.6 x 5.6 cm (small cabinet)


Largest Eosphorite Crystal: 1.1 cm. Vayrynenite Crystal: 0.2 cm.

To say that this piece has a lot going on is an understatement. This specimen hosts SEVEN species, and is truly a delight to view. Honestly, there is no one characteristic of the piece that stands out more than another in my opinion. There are several attractive pastel orange color Eosphorite crystals which are sitting on white Albite (var: Cleavelandite) crystals that are coating a thick, prismatic dark blue and black Tourmaline crystal. The piece also hosts a few gemmy Topaz crystals plus a small dark red {Stibiotantalite? or Manganotantalite?} crystal, PLUS one of the Topaz crystals actually has {Stibiotantalite? or Manganotantalite?} inclusions! Additionally, there are some small, dark brown, rosette-shaped spherical aggregates of an unknown mineral (possibly a phosphate?) on the piece as well. Last but not least, the upper portion of the specimen features a small, but very bright pink crystal of Vayrynenite! It is not often that pegmatite specimens have this many associations on the same piece, let alone the great mix of rarity with colorful more common species. One final note, it appears that this piece might possibly be repaired towards the base, but it is glued to an acrylic stand, and I cannot tell for sure if it is only a crack, or a genuine repair. Nonetheless, one does not see many specimens like this one from Pakistan or any other pegmatite district. Enjoy.

Eosphorite

Locality: Chamachu, Skardu District, Pakistan

Specimen Size: 3.3 x 2.7 x 1.9 cm (miniature)
Largest Eosphorite crystal: 2.1 cm.


This toenail specimen hosts the largest and richest color Eosphorite crystal in the lot. Honestly, I think the piece could be trimmed down to a top-shelf thumbnail, to even enhance its value. The main Eosphorite crystal on this specimen is actually doubly-terminated, and weve tried to illustrate this in the photos, but it does not show up as well as it does in person. There are many Eosphorite crystals on this piece, possibly more than any other specimen in the lot, and they are sitting atop contrasting white Microcline matrix. This highly aesthetic and salient little specimen is a remarkable Eosphorite from any locality. It packs a lot of character for a smaller specimen.
