Vivianite - radiating needle habit
Kerch Penninsula, Crimea Penninsula
Crimea Oblast, Russia
5.6 x 3.3 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $240


Pointed blue green blades and needles of Vivianite in a radiating cluster. Formed on a soft Sandstone matrix this is an older piece (the original labels say "Ukraine") from well before the Russian annexation of this area. The crystals are in fine condition, there is some contacting but no real damage. With good lighting the color is a dark blue to green but otherwise this does look darker. Nicer in person, a good, delicate spray habit example of this famed find.
