Miniature, 4.6 x 0.7 x 0.6 cm
Erongo Mountains, Namibia

This is an example from older finds in the Erongo district, showing a more classic crystal morphology and typical gradient of color from clear at the tip to a blue base. When these first came out in a trickle, in about 2000-2002, they caused great excitement in the market and it was the first time most collectors could even think of owning a nice example of this species. This piece would have been, easily $5000 at the time. Today however, they are admittedly more common as other pockets have been hit, although crystals of this large size are still uncommon and this is a significant crystal that should be highly valued as a rarity. The new find/pocket, the others presented here, are so obviously and totally different from anything found before.
