Item Description

This mine has produced what are clearly some of the finest quality Vivianite specimens ever seen. This miniaure size piece features a few beautiful, good quality, somewhat lustrous, gemmy emerald green, sword shaped "textbook" crystals of Vivianite on minor metamorphosed Sandstone. These best of these crystals are some of the best quality Vivianites 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 good condition, and is one of the gemmiesr pieces I've offered recently. I have never seen specimens of this quality, color, luster and gemminess before, not only from Bolivia, but virtually any world locality.
