Description

This mine has produced what are clearly some of the finest quality Vivianite specimens ever seen. This piece features a group of beautiful, lustrous, gem quality, light blue-green, sword shaped "textbook" crystals of Vivianite sitting atop metamorphosed Sandstone. Typically the crystals from this find were either off matrix, or only hosted a single crystal on matrix, so to find a plethora of crystals on matrix like this is truly rare for this locality. The assemble looks highly aesthetic in various positions. No significant damages to report.
