Arfvedsonite

Very few collectors are familiar with this wonderful and fairly rare stone. It is sometimes mistakenly referred to and sold as Blue Astrophyllite, but this stone is not Astrophyllite.

Arfvedsonite comes from the same location in Russia as does Astrophyllite, but is a mineral variety unto itself. The primary difference in appearance between the two is that the “flash” in Arfvedsonite almost always contains some blue, or often silver, colored needles. Astrophyllite does not show this coloration.

It is very unusual to find Worry Stones made of Arfvedsonite.
