Descloizite (Var: Cuprian Descloizite)
Berg Aukas (Berg Aukus), Grootfontein District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 13.5 x 8.2 x 7.3 cm
Berg Aukus is the premier locality for Descloizite specimens. This piece is a very attractive display specimen featuring dozens of incredibly well formed, attractive, olive-brown, orthorhombic chisel-shaped crystals of Descloizite. The piece has a light dusting of iron-oxide for a nice color accent. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
