This piece hosts a vug full of sharp, sparkling erythrite crystals. The crystals have good deep colour and are transparent. In excellent condition, the crystals are protected in the vug. A very pretty 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 lot are superb quality specimens of this beautiful mineral.
