Item Description

This mine has produced what are clearly some of the finest quality Vivianite specimens ever seen. This small cabinet size piece features absolutely beautiful, lustrous, gem quality, emerald green, sword shaped "textbook" crystals of Vivianite sitting atop 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 in very good shape. I have never seen specimens of this quality, color, luster and gemminess before, not only from Bolivia, but virtually any world locality. This piece has TOP color and luster and is a large and flashy specimen....just a super overall Vivianite specimen from this unusual new find in Bolivia.
