Berg Aukas (Berg Aukus), Grootfontein District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.0 x 3.9 cm
This is one of the finest specimens of Descloizite I have seen. The crystal development is absolutely superb, and the luster ranges from mirror-like to velvety. Some of the crystals are 1 cm thick, and the overall arrangement like a christmas tree is really striking. The cluster IS complete all around which is really a nice bonus! Such dramatic crystal development and fine luster make this a killer for the species. Now, I know most folks usually consider these to be boring but this one is decidedly worthy of being in ANY collection. 6.0 x 5.0 x 3.9 cm
