Description

Great German classic in outstanding quality! Glossy large spheres of dark green wavelliet in excellent contrast to matrix. While most specimen show dull intergrown aggregates, this one is really aesthetic with several isolated and exposed spheres. This opencast uranium mine was abandoned in 1990 and no new material can be expected. Material in this quality is an outstanding rarity!
