Description

From the relative recent find at the Aris quarry in Namibia which yielded probably the best villiaumites worldwide so far: a gemmy salmon-coloured (with a kind of orange tint, striking colour) villiaumite crystal fills a cavity in phonolite.

The frontside shows well developed crystal faces, only on the back there is some cleavage - very showy and attractive specimen!
