Miniature, 4.0 x 2.8 x 2.1 cm
Jos Plateau, Nigeria

A clean, sharp phenakite crystal from these strange finds in Nigeria, in about 2010-2012. This one, unlike most others, has a semblance of the symmetry you would normally expect to see in a Phenakite from other locations, although it is more clean and gemmy. Most of these show dissolution patterns and look more like garnets, than anything. This is atypical for the find in that it really is a recognizable, euhedral, robust crystal. Rare in such size and quality, this is 39 grams
