Nepouite (Green) and Quartz
Loma Peguera, Falcondo Plant, Bonao, Monsenor Nouel Prov,. Dominican Republic
Miniature, 5.3 x 3.4 x 3.3 cm
This specimen consists mostly of neon green, botryoidal crusts of the very rare nickel, magnesium, silicate, nepouite. Associated with the nepouite are sparkling, minute clusters of quartz crystals. Never seen one for sale before, so I bought it, simple as that. Its a rare, pretty nickel mineral that doesn't cost a lot....and is from a neat locale. I wish I could get more!
