Chryoprase (unusual crystallized specimen with Pimelite/Nimite)
stock #16.1-682
Szklary (Glasendorff) Zabkowice, Zabkowice District
Lower Silesia, Poland
6.6 x 5.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Pre Holiday 2017

A very odd and attractive Chrysoprase specimen from the very old mines at Szklary, Poland. The matrix hosts very unusual but attractive clear quartz crystals with a mint green color caused by forming on top of the Chrysoprase. Szklary had both gem grade Chrysoprase and many Nickle minerals mined since the middle ages. We obtained a suite from that region in an old Czech collection, this notes it was obtained in 1980 the year the mine closed. We have never seen another one like this, the sparkling luster is not at all typical. Some areas of the earthy green minerals Pimelite and/or Nimite are noted as accessories, more typical for the area. A pretty quartz oddity.
