Description

A very rare sample of angelsite (the crystal is about 19mm tall). Mezica is well known for wulfenite, but angelsite represents an out-standing rarity. The crystal is sharp terminated, free-standing and highly lustrous. It shows a great contrast to the dark matrix - it is out of the famous Berger collection and will come with the original Berger label.
