Miniature, 4.5 x 3.3 x 1.6 cm
Jos Plateau, Nigeria

Jos phenakite is unique in the world, and this elegant, elongated specimen shows why. It has amazing surface features, that look like the etching on some garnets. It is gemmy and bright, and much better in person because the camera has a hard time focusing given the high transparency and refractive index of this crystal. Stunning, in person, these are really quite amazing to look at! 20 grams
