An excellent thumbnail of spear-point bladed crystals of descloizite from what is arguably the best locality for the species in the world. The translucent to gemmy crystals have stepped faces and sharp, beveled edges with a shiny metallic luster. It displays very well with a backlight and glows a deep amber color. From the well-known Namibian mineral collection of Shields and Frances Flynn, who self-published the book, Minerals of Namibia - From the Collection of Shields and Frances Flynn in 2018.
