Aragonite crystals with a violet core perched on matrix from the type locality in Aragon, Spain. Matrix crystals from this prolific locality are incredibly rare and the purple zones are the most desirable. The matrix is quite fragile which helps to explain why most specimens are single loose crystals. An older specimen from the Ara Dildilion collection with original label.
Very impressive form and esthetics for any Aragonite. Ball like radiating clusters of crystals in elongated translucent prismatic form twins that are joined in a chain. Some internal coloring on some areas adds a nice contrast. Fine condition overall, a few chips are seen on the backside but otherwise this is a 360 degree piece, displayable from most any angle.
Aragonite with a classic copper blue green coloring from the classic locality of Lavrion. Well crystallized and esthetic, This can be backlit for a dramatic effect. Minor chipping of some terminations is not easy to notice from most display angles, but it also keeps the price lower for such a nice display specimen.
