Detailed Description

This specimen hosts super erythrite crystals - sharp, great lustre and colour, translucent to transparent. In excellent condition (particularly considering no surrounding rock protected this one during mining or transportation) - a couple of imperfect tips and some incomplete crystals around the periphery. Stands perfectly for display as photographed. A beautiful specimen of clustered erythrite crystals.


About These Erythrites

Erythrite crystals from Bou Azzer are generally regarded as the finest in the world. The challenge with erythrite, however, is to obtain fine-quality specimens - the mineral is so soft and delicate that most specimens are damaged in the removal process or during subsequent transportation. These erythrites are superb quality specimens of this beautiful mineral.
