A sharp single crystal showing unusually intense green color and gemminess for this OLD CLASSIC locale. This piece was self-collected at the location by Skip Szenics in 1967 when he rediscovered the veins (which had been "lost" for over 50 years). Written up in the Lapidary Journal in the late 1960s, this was a significant discovery and remains the last time that major crystals were found here. Then, the piece went into the Joe Cilen collection
