Jardinera No. 1 Mine, Inca de Oro, Chanaral Province, Atacama Region, Chile
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.2 x 2.3 cm
Brilliant, electric green crystals of this very rare species which was found only once in a 1-meter-pocket, by Terry Szenics. He brought these to market mostly in the mid-1990s and none of any quality have been found since. This is one that he sold to Bill Pinch early on, from his collection, and features a very rich, 3-dimensional display surface with lots of color. The larger crystals are partial, contacted at the ends, though crossed by smaller crystals showing full terminations in the middle of the piece. Ex. Bill Pinch Collection.
