Item Description

A fine quality, sharp, glassy, translucent Tremolite crystal with startling neon-green from this limited find dating back about 10 years. The crystal is good sized for the locality, and the color is superb as Tremolite is typically dark green (nearly black) in most cases. Tremolite is a well-known amphibole species, but to have crystals with this color makes them incredibly desirable. An excellent example of the species and locality, especially because the crystal is complete all the way around and really glows with color when backlit. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
