Thumbnail, 2.6 x 1.9 x 1.7 cm
A fine and sculptural thumbnail cluster of sharp, highly lustrous, black to dark olive-green epidote crystals from the premiere world-wide locality for epidote. The large crystal on this fine, complete-all-around piece has a sharp, chisel termination. Most of these were found prior to the 1950s, and as far as over 100 years back. Very highly representative of the species and locale. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection.
