Item Description

Ex. Philadelphia Academy of Sciences Collection. A rich, large specimen - overall, a rich plate with dozens of sharp, translucent, beautiful crystals running all over it, to 1.2 cm in length; and many of which are doubly-terminated. A vein of some white phosphate material runs through the middle. Almost certainly this was field-collected on one of the famous Vaux expeditions in the early 1900s (ancient history for mineral collecting!). TYPE LOCALITY MATERIAL: Paravauxite was described in 1922. Try finding one of these on the market!
