Description

One of the best Senegalites that is left from my tours. Very nice botryoidal augelite (similar material has been analyzed for the article in Lapis magazine 2007 - and it was not turquoise), powdered with very good senegalite crystals. The senegalite crystals built a closed surface on the augelite in parts.This is a very nice, aesthetic specimen. I had it trimmed professionally.
