Cabinet, 9.7 x 4.8 x 3.9 cm
Crosscut Creek, Dawson Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada

This is a major, nearly cabinet-sized display specimen of this beautiful species. A dark gray, brecciated shale with inclusions of rich blue lazulite, is covered with glassy and gemmy, green crystals of augelite to 8 mm across. The crystal tips exhibit a darker, richer green color. Augelite is an uncommon aluminum rich phosphate and this is generally considered to be the world's best locality for pretty crystals of this species. Plates this large and rich are old, and few and far between
