Mount Yukspor, Khibiny, Kola Peninsula, Russia
This tiny thumbnail specimen consists of a small piece of Yuksporite. It shows no isolated crystals, but has a compact, fibrous habit that may be quite unusual for the specie. It has the standard pale pink color and pearly luster, and is essentially opaque as a whole. A tiny amount of a gray host rock is attached, and the piece is protected within a small plastic box.
