Spring update

A choice and rare Brazillian Vivianite from a pegmatite famed for interesting and rare Phosphates. In excellent condition, sizable for the locale and translucent to transparent with a blue green color. The main rosette cluster is over 5 CM tall and the associated Muscovite is significant, this was notable for this one time find in 2007. Pegmatite Vivianites are almost never this large or good since most Vivs are found in Sulfide mines. This discovery was significantly different.

A gem clear single crystal with excellent dark green to bluish color, and glasslike luster. Sharp and elegant, this is at its best with some backlight to bring out the inner colors. On the backside some small matrix is adhering, but mostly this is a single, loose crystal. Typical curving of the termination can be seen at some angles. Choice older specimen from 1980 vintage finds, excellent condition.
