This 11.8 x 6.5 cm cabinet boracite with hilgardite exhibits very fine mint green boracite tetrahedrons to 0.5 cm across. Interestingly, boracite forms multiple generations on the specimen including as pale green spheroidal aggregates and as pale yellow crystals with hilgardite inclusions. Hilgardite crystals are scattered around the specimen. These remarkable pieces came from the early to mid 1990s finds, with none since and is a must for any lover of English classics! This was Lindsay Greenbank's personal cabinet specimen and came to me in the purchase of his private collection in 2007 ! It is very rich and sparkling, as a bonus.
