Item Description

A true rarity! Most people do not know that these come from anywhere but Utah, but here is a KALAHARI bixbyite, yes! Choice plate of highly lustrous, well-formed cubes of black Bixbyite from a very famous locality. The Bixbyites cover both sides of the plate, and the individual crystals range up to .2 cm in size. Black on black is hard to photograph - it is far better, and much more sparkly and eye-catching, in person. An excellent specimen for the locality valued $500
