Elongated cellular cavities in an iron-stained milky Quartz veinstone are richly lined with sparkling, intergrown dark bottle green crystals of Libethenite to around 1 mm, from its type locality at Ľubietová in Slovakia.  Libethenite is a copper phosphate and the deposit at Ľubietová (formerly Libethen, the old German name) is one of the richest and most ancient copper mines in Europe, mining having begun during the Bronze Age.  This lovely small cabinet specimen is accompanied with an old printed, typed and handwritten Italian label.
