Miniature, 4.0 x 3.5 x 2.7 cm
Mt Antero, Chaffee Co., Colorado, USA

A sharp, lustrous and translucent colorless 1.4 cm blocky phenakite rhomb aesthetically perched on albite with muscovite matrix. This is an excellent phenakite crystal in itself and was self-collected by Al Partee with Dr. Steve Neely and Ralph Clark in the mid-1980s. This piece had the greatest sentimental value to Al and was the hardest for him to part with, he told me. 4.0 x 3.5 x 2.7 cm
