Thompson Open Pit, Thompson, Manitoba, Canada
Thumbnail, 2.3 x 2.0 x 1.2 cm
Ex. Martin Lewadny
A very rich specimen of the rare mineral Millerite, with the display face covered with dense, velvety acicular balls of a deep, brassy green. The largest of these is 1.2 cm across. You can see the golden sheen of the crystals along the tips of these radial clusters. A very fine specimen for the locality and the find, as Marty had much of this find when it came out and kept this, the best thumbnail he acquired, for himself (this wsa in the mid to late 1990s)
