Euclase -blue crystals with Quartz
stock #13.1-288
Lost Hope Mine, Mwami, Karol District
Mashonaland West, Zimbabwe
5.2 x 3.7 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $950


A sizable cluster of Euclase crystals and sections of crystals on a nearly pure Euclase matrix. The color ranges from a light blue to a deep inky blue and the scattered Quartz crystals add a contrast. From the Lost Hope mine of Zimbabwe, this was found more than 40 years ago. The largest crystal is 2.6 CM in size but it must be noted it is closely encased in the matrix with only a few faces showing, and the better display angles do not present the best color zones. This is a sizable mass of Euclase with some gemmy areas and some nice striations on the larger faces, although the edges do have lots of cleavages and rough zones. Relatively affordable, the photos to me look a little bit better than the specimen in person but they are real with no photoshop tricks. A good value for this often very costly gem mineral.
