Berg Aukas (Berg Aukus), Grootfontein District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.4 x 3.2 x 2.6 cm
One of the more beautiful miniatures I have seen of descloizite from the prime worldwide locality for this mineral, Berg Aukus. In person, the bladed crystals are less grayish and more of a rich brown color. They have a beautiful glimmer to them, are large, razor-sharp and pristine. The trimming was beautifully done, so that you have just a bit of matrix underneath supporting the cluster, with no damage - so it looks great from all sides.
