Item Description

Berg Aukus is world-renown for its extraordinary Descloizite specimens. These pieces are the standard of excellence for this zinc analogue of Mottramite. This small cabinet specimen hosts dozens of layered semi-spherical aggregates of highly lustrous, razor-sharp, chocolate brown Descloizite crystals on matrix. A nice illustrative, undamaged specimen of this classic material for a great price.
