Description

You are bidding on a small, but exceptional sample from Bisbee with a vug of outstanding, perfectly terminated, gemmy connellite prisms associated with green barrels of spangolite. A vug on the side of the sample has some nice flattened spangolite crystals with a few more needles of connellite and abundant curpite crystals. This is extremely hard material to find these days! Rich and beautiful.
