A plate of clear quartz flaunts etherial orbs of Gilalite. This material
is called "paraiba in quartz" though the inclusions are actually Gilalite. Both Paraiba tourmaline and
Gilalite are colored by traces of the element copper and both are found in the same region though Gilalite
is less common.
"K2 jasper" is an unusual material distinguished by orbs of bright blue azurite along with black flakes of
biotite and random stains of malachite. Not a jasper at all, this white granite is found at the base of the
second highest mountain in the world - "K2", or "Mount Godwin Austen" in Pakistan.
