Last Hope Mine, Karoi Dist., Mashonaland West, Zimbabwe
Miniature, 4.8 x 4.3 x 4.2 cm
Ex. Bill & Anne Cook

We almost never see these old classic euclase crystals for sale, and usually then it is only available in thumbnails. This, however, is a large and full miniature with an impactful display view and a hefty feel. The prominent, large central crystal stands 4 cm tall nearly. This was collected some time prior to 1977 when it was sold to the Cooks. Bill and Anne Cook were highly sophisticated collectors by then and these euclase specimens were among the world's best at the time, perfect for their suite of rare gem crystals. This massive specimen has no repairs, as some larger survivors from here do. The sharp termination is 3 cm across, which is huge. Overall, it is a sharp crystal with amazing and intense blue color that will leap off a shelf. An appearance quite unlike any other blue gem mineral we can think of.
