Description

What a fine specimen. Several exceeding well developed and mirror bright crystals of vivianite on matrix. The crystals are showing a very smooth and shiny surface, they are transparent with a deep green into black reaching colour. They are excellent terminated as well and so far I can see, there is not one significant damage worth to report. A super piece on highest aesthetics level. The pictures were made with clear backlight to show the clearity and colour.
