Description:A classic example of the famous Augites from the locality at Firmerich, Germany. This well known Pyroxene is not often seen in single crystals, and this piece is essentially a "floater", and I can't find any real point of attachment. It shows sharp and smooth faces with a dark greenish-black color. It's in great shape all the way around, and the bottom of the crystal is totally crystallized and not cleaved. From the collection of Renaud Vochten, whose label states it was either collected or added to his collection in 1972.
