Description

One of the most relevant discoveries during decades in Europe. These vivianite are probably the best world-wide, their color is even better than from compare-bale material from Bolivia. The particular specimen shows a huge main crystal - it is completely free-standing, raising up vertically on a crazy assemble of matrix. Several other crystals are inter-grown to the matrix. At the top it looks like the vivianite is wearing a hat of tiny, dark rock. A wonderful architecture, remarkable dimension and stunning quality, intense color and best transparency of the vivianite!
