Aragonite (fluorescent)
Agrigento, Agrigento Province, Sicily, Italy
Cabinet, 11.5 x 5.4 x 3.8 cm
Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli
An exceptional Sicilian Aragonite specimen consisting of excellent, large, prismatic, hexagonal crystals, all emanating off of a Quartz stalactite. The crystals have a soft, pastel green color and very good luster along with terminations that are sharp and well-defined. Most remarkable, I think, is the unusual geometry. The Aragonites can be viewed and appreciated from numerous angles, and the piece can be realistically mounted in several ways. To add icing to the cake, the Aragonite has a uniform and quite sublime pink fluorescence. This is a good Aragonite from this historic locality, and it is in great shape overall. You just don't see elegant examples of these old classics on the market anymore, especially in such fine display specimens. Comes with a custom base.
