A gemmy, lustrous and pristine yellow-green heliodor crystal with slightly altered prism faces from a 2003 find at the Erongo Mountains of Namiba. The pinacoid termination shows the gemminess of the crystal. Never seen more of these beyond one small lot of a dozen-plus crystals I picked up in 2003 2.8 x 1.1 x 0.9 cm
