Globe and Phoenix Mine (Phoenix and Globe Mine), Kwekwe (Que Que), Gweru (Gwelo) District, Midlands, Zimbabwe
Miniature, 3.7 x 3.0 x 1.8 cm
Lustrous and well-formed, this pillar is composed of many beautiful acicular crystals of silver-black, metallic Kermesite. On one side is a radial spray that the species is known for. This specimen is attractive all the way around 360 degrees, and compares very favorably with what came out around 1970. Now, such specimens are extremely rare on the market and hard to obtain. 3.7 x 3 x 1.8 cm
