Description

You are bidding on a thumbnail from the Martin Jensen collection with a vug hosting some colorless to white, small bladed crystals of parascholzite. Parascholzite is an extremely rare mineral at the Tip Top Mine and was ONLY found in the erhleite paragenesis. This sample was a lucky dump find made by Martin in 2010 and he thought he'd found a sample of erhleite before the analysis was complete. One of the rarest species at the Tip Top Mine and a very hard one to check off your list of minerals from this famous mine.
