Item Description

Two generations of childrenite crystals line this well-placed, 2.8 cm-vug atop quartz-rich matrix from the famous Palermo #1 Mine. The vug is lined with gemmy and lustrous, honey-brown crystals to about 5 mm. A 1 cm quartz crystal is attached to the side of the vug. This is a rich specimen for the locale. Self-collected by Robert Whitmore in 1971, # 443, from his own mine. NOTE TEXT CHANGES DUE TO EARLIER MISTAKE LISTING THE QUARTZ AS A CHILDRENITE...
