Nice cluster of gemmy, mint-green Augelite crystals, on Quartz, from the recent discoveries in 2012-14. The Augelites have intense color, superb luster, and the faces range from smooth to gently striated. There is some zoning to these glassy crystals, and the mineral combination has a pleasant visual appeal. Overall, a rich and showy thumbnail example from this find.
