Description

Euclase is generally a more rare mineral, blue euclase is even more rare - and blue euclase from this locality is an exceptional rarity! This color is out-standing, such a deep, dark, intense blue doesn´t exist from any other locality. The crystal is highly lustrous and the faces show a wonderful structure. Both indicators - luster and color - are even better in person.
