ID: CC4224
A choice, large miniature of well crystallised Willemite forming rich light aquamarine druses over the deep vuggy surface of iron-rich Dolomite.  The Willemite, a zinc silicate, forms spherical crystal aggregates to 2 mm in diameter and is predominantly transparent, grading to gemmy.  Its subtle aquamarine colour contrasts well with associated micro-granular white Calcite and deep brick-red stained Willemite and Dolomite.
