Ajoite and Copper in Quartz
Cabinet, 13.5 x 8.7 x 7.1 cm
Messina Mine, Transvaal, South Africa
A large and dramatic cluster of quartz with a SHARP and unusually lustrous, pristine termination hihglighted by a burst inclusion of bright blue ajoite! Complete all around, this is a rare and large example of this classic association. The mine has NOT been producing such large specimens in a long time. For color saturation and overall display, this is an impressive specimen and a great example of the finds here.
