Green Monster Mountain, Prince of Wales Island, Prince of Wales-Outer Ketchikan Borough, Alaska, USA
Miniature, 3.6 x 3.3 x 2.4 cm
Prince of Wales Island is an awful place to collect minerals - bitterly cold, windy, rocky and nasty - but some intrepid collectors have gone there to search for these large, chunky, sharp and wonderful crystals of epidote. Despite a couple of areas of damage, this one has beautiful form, good size and great sharp faces. Collection of French dealer in Brazilian minerals, Michel Jactat.
