Berg Aukas, Namibia has produced the world's finest descloizite specimens and this is an excellent and aesthetic specimen. Highly lustrous, two-toned, brown, spear-point-shaped crystals comprise this fine specimen. The deep chocolate-brown crystals have a complimentary, preferential, secondary overgrowth of tan calcite or dolomite. The largest spear-point is 2.3 cm. This fine piece is a very highly representative example of the species and locality, which closed in 1978. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection, obtained in January 1974.
