Detailed Description

The vug on this specimen is lined with wonderful erythrite crystals up to 0.6 cm. These crystals are sharp and lustrous, transparent to translucent, with the top rich colour. In excellent condition, no damage, just tiny incomplete crystals at the periphery where it was removed from the adjoining rock. This one is really sweet, with deep colour and sparkle. 


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.
