Description

Rich specimen featuring hundreds of orange-brown acicular amphibole crystals in the cavities of a porous volcanic matrix. This specimen was collected before 1980 by Jozef Verbist, who was the CEO of the CMB (Compagnie Maritime Belge).

It has been perfectly preserved since then in a Jousi box so it is very clean, without power or fibres, that are very hard to clean in such delicate specimens. Beautiful!.
