Superb, sharply formed cluster of translucent to gemmy, mint-green Augelite crystals, on sharp Quartz, from the recent discoveries in 2012-14. The Augelites have good luster, and the faces range from smooth to gently striated. There is some zoning to these attractive crystals, and the mineral combination has a pleasant, visual appeal. Overall, though, one gets a feeling of sharpness and geometry from this colorful specimen.
