ID: CC12362
A splendid, 1.3 cm tall Vivianite crystal with a kink halfway along the a-axis of the crystal resulting in a really interesting specimen.  The intensely dark green-blue Vivianite is perched on a matrix of massive Chalcopyrite, probably mixed with Pyrite and overgrown with small curved platy crystals of off-cream Calcite to 7 mm long.  Vivianite is not that common in the Trepča lead-zinc-silver mining district of Kosovo and this is a nice example.  Please note a repair has been made to this specimen but is not visible.
