Agardite with Malachite

$750.00   €638  £550.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC16674
A rusty coloured limonitic matrix, so typical of the Kamariza mines around and beneath the town of Agios Konstantinos in the Lavrion District of Greece, has excellent delicate tufts of chartreuse-green Agardite lining a vug and parts of the surface.  The Kamariza mining district hosts four Agardite species, Agardite-(Ce), (La), (Nd) and (Y).  This specimen has not been analysed, so cannot be designated as a specific species within this group.  The colour is quite striking, making the fibrous acicular crystals contrast superbly against the dark-rust coloured matrix.  The Agardite crystals are developed up to 1 cm long and an adjacent 2.2 x 1.0 cm vug is richly lined with emerald-green Malachite crystals.  A lovely specimen form Kamariza.
