Outstanding cabinet sized Torbernite with rich green color and incredible crystal form. From the last great finds at Margabal, this is a superb piece in impeccable condition. There are two habits of Torbernite showing two generations on this piece, the largest being the fans of splayed plates. This size and quality is top percentile and the deep forrest green is impressive, but far better in person.
A fine, old German Torbernite from the Dr. Moritz Lechner collection (his number 7258 is attached), This important collection was begun in the 1850's and the number indicates this was likely added in about 1890. The collection was built from other significant old collections he purchased during those years, so this piece may be even older. The first descriptions of the mineral from here date to the 1770's. Ex John Marshall collection, this piece has a good relatively dense coverage of sharp plates with a nice deep green color. This locale is known for great Mimetites and some rarities, but it is also the type locality for Torbernite.
Brilliant bright Green crystals of several habits densely cluster on the top and sides of this matrix. From the Larry White collection, this is an older piece and in pristine condition. Not just a "locality" specimen, this is very esthetic and not often available.
