Papagoite (Crystals!)
Miniature, 5.9 x 3.3 x 2.1 cm
Sindair Mine, South Central Namibia
Ex. Charlie Key
A very rich, rare specimen of microcrystallized papagoite! Charlie stated, and I agree based on what I have seen, that this small mine might be yielding the finest actual crystals of this species, which is usually seen as mere adjoined microcrystalline crusts from Arizona or as inclusions with in quartz from the Transvaal area. He thought very highly of this specimen, as do I. It can and should probably be broken into two specimens of equal value as a rarity.
