Description

An array of Liroconite crystals is set in a vug inside the gossan matrix, showing the classic vibrant electric blue colour that makes this specie one of the most sought after british species.
These specimens have more than one century and are seldom available on the market.

The specimen comes with two nice labels of the britishe collectors Paul Lowe and Richard Barstow.

Ferrero's Minerals sold this piece about 15 years ago, and we recently re acquired it.
