This Cryolite specimen is the largest available on the market currently at 13 x 8 x 8 inches, and 30 kg!
Cryolite is a rare mineral identified with an originally large deposit at Ivigtût in Greenland, but was depleted by 1987. Cryolite can occur as colorless, glassy, white/red to grey/black prismatic monoclinic crystals and has a Mohs hardness of 2.5 to 3. Cryolite has a very low refractive index of 1.34 , which is similar to water; if Cryolite is immersed in water than it becomes essentially invisible.
This showpiece is quite impressive, with interesting striations. It is translucent in some spots, making it possible to see what is encased beneath. There are many interesting formations throughout, which means it could be displayed from any angle.
Cryolite is believed to stimulate the Crown and Base Chakras, balancing the energy flow between them. An interesting aspect of Cryolite is that it is also thought to aid in public speaking by calming nerves before a performance.
