Item Description

Some of the largest and most displayable specimens of Wavellite have come from the Siglo XX mine in Bolivia as described by Mark Bandy. This piece features several, bright soft yellow color, radiating aggregates of Wavellite measuring up to 0.9 cm across which are perched atop GEM quality, prismatic Quartz crystals. The key aspect to this piece is the fact that the luster is very good compared to most Wavellites from Siglo XX. A very interesting and attractive phosphate display specimen from this classic locality.
