Ajoite in Quartz (Floater!)
Miniature, 4.7 x 2.5 x 1.9 cm
Messina Mine, Transvaal, South Africa
Ex. Martin Zinn
Even rarer than a papagoite inclusion is the related copper species AJOITE. Here we have an UNPOLISHED natural DOUBLY-terminated crystal that displays about the richest zone of concentrated ajoite inclusion you can ask for, and the most ajoite I have ever seen in one spot on one crystal. Truly an exceptional miniature by ANY standard for the collector of all things quartz, copper, south african, etc etc.
