This mine has produced what are clearly some of the finest quality Vivianite specimens ever seen. This miniature size piece is an absolutely beautiful, superb quality, HIGHLY lustrous, gemmy emerald green, sword shaped "textbook" crystal group of Vivianite with minor metamorphosed Sandstone. These are some of the best quality Vivianite crystals you will see from any locality, hands down. Keep in mind that over 75% of the specimens from this find have had SERIOUS damage problems. This piece is very good condition and is one of the gemmiest I've seen from the find. I have never handled so many specimens of this quality, color, luster and gemminess before, not only from Bolivia, but virtually any world locality.
