- Cabinet, 14.1 x 5.6 x 4.4 cm
- Lubietova (Libethen), Bystrica Region, Slovakia
A significant specimen from the TYPE LOCALITY both for its size, and for the huge, sharp crystal on matrix that is so seldom seen. That large dominant crystal is just a hair over 1 cm in size, and it is SHARP AND EQUANT. So few euchroites reach this size, and retain such symmetry, it seems. I have seen only a few bigger, and those not so well placed on nice matrix. Overall the specimen is attractive because of the covering of euchroite elsewhere upon it, also including some smaller sharp crystals and in places a more velvety druse. This is an important specimen from THE significant locality for this species. Note the date of 1893 on the second old label, and the listing of the country as Hungary on the Krantz label, dating this piece quite nicely in time!
