Item Description

A very sculptural specimen dominated by divergent sprays of relatively large, almost arborescent Descloizite crystals from the classic Berg Aukas Mine in Namibia, the best localities in the world for the species! The piece consists of numerous, elongated, dark bronze, shiny clusters of Descloizite crystals to 3 cm on a small amount of matrix. These sharp, super lustrous, spearpoint-shaped crystals are well terminated and have no apparent damage, and are of exceptional quality. There must be two dozen elongate crystals on this piece that essentially diverge from the small remnant of Goethite-rich matrix. Exquisite and artistic!
