Detailed Description

A gorgeous cabinet specimen, featuring a vug of exceptional-quality erythrite crystals up to 0.9 cm. The crystals are razor sharp, excellent deep colour and they range from transluscent to transparent. Their lustre also ranges - most are lustrous, and at the narrow, pinching area of the vug, they grade to a lower lustre. That is due to a super-thin coating, in places, of annabergite. In suberb condition - no damage other than one bent tip and a few incomplete crystals in a couple of places around the periphery, but even the periphery on this one is amazingly clean. This is a fantastic erythrite.


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 subsequent transportation. The erythrites in this small lot are superb quality specimens of this beautiful mineral.
