Surreal color and form on this secondary man-made zincite from Poland. A fantastic 2.3 cm, spiky glassy, gemmy light yellow-green "pine tree" is dramatically set on a stunnning flame-like terminated mound of glassy, gemmy, gorgeous, red-orange scalenohederons accented with a few yellow scalenohedrons. This stunning, but very beautiful 360-degree specimen was lab grown for decorative purposes or as a collectible. Seldom available in this quality as crystalline specimens, though. Ex Mervyn Ford Collection. Valued highly for color and aesthetics. This is easily the most exotic looking example we have offered at auction.
