Item Description

Beautiful, sparkly, transluent, blue-green bladed wavellite botryoids, to about 8 mm, line a sculptural vug in the large brecciated matrix. The broken botryoids on the vug periphery reveal the striking, radial, bi-colored growth of the glassy blades, adding interest and contrast. A very fine complement to previous Zigras Mine wavellite specimen. A highly desirable and uncommon bluish-green color on this impressive large piece from circa 2010 finds at Avant, and a unique pocket. Valued at $1500-2000
