28431: Descloizite
Berg Aukas Mine, Grootfontein District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
Miniature - 4.3 x 3.2 x 2.7 cm (1.7 x 1.3 x 1.1 inches)
32 grams (0.07 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

A cluster of translucent to opaque, mostly sharp descloizite crystals from the famous Berg Aukas Mine. The color ranges from greenish to orange-brown. Not the prettiest descloizite I've ever seen, but a good representative example for the locality, without breaking the bank. Sits for display without needing support. A few incomplete crystals are noted, but these are not a distraction, especially at this price.
