This specimen features two generations of erythrite. The deep-coloured crystals are sharp and lustrous, while the second generation erythrite is comprised of light pink fuzzy balls. In excellent condition, a very slight rub at the tip of the larger crystal. Stands perfectly for display as photographed. An aesthetic piece, really nice!
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 lot are superb quality specimens of this beautiful mineral.
