RM612   Austinite on goethite-hematite

Mina Ojuela, Mapimí, Municipio de Mapimí, Durango, Mexico

This nice speciemn shows various globular aggregates formed by several austinite lanceolate crystals in radial growth. Good transparence, excellent brilliance and almost colorless, they are real gems. On starkly contrasting matrix with goethite-hematite and small crystals of adamite. This specimen has a superb quality for the species. I recommend the buyer to use a magnifying lens to enjoy the small crystals that are disposed on the matrix. Good choice.

Size: 5,4 x 5,2 x 2,8 cm.
Main crystal: 12 x 9 mm.
Found in 2008.
