Item Description

A superb Wardite thumbnail from Rapid Creek featuring a superb, textbook, di-pyramidal crystal of soft green colored Wardite measuring 1.4 cm across aesthetically perched atop a matrix featuring inky blue Lazulite crystals along with golden-brown Siderite. The Wardite has highly glistening luster, and is undamaged. To my taste, this is such wonderful aesthetics, with a fantastic isolated crystal sitting at the topmost portion of the specimen. You'd be hard-pressed to find another piece like this one in terms of quality, size and arrangement. Don't pass this up if you're a thumbnail collector, a fan of phosphates or if you love minerals from Rapid Creek. From the collection of Shields Flynn with a label from Ernie Schlichter.
