ID: CC2177
Siderites from the area around Vizille in France are some of the most outstanding found in nature. This compact specimen is no exception, composed of an aesthetic array of interlocking, upright, thin bladed crystals with crisp sharp edges. The near opaque pale buff coloured Siderite crystals are associated with a few small terminated white to clear Quartz crystals, a frequent association from this area.  A very pretty specimen of large scaley and perfectly formed Siderite crystals.  I’m a little bemused as to how this specimen has found its way into a selection of green specimens, but it does have a greenish hint if you glance at it sideways!
