ID: CC8031
A fine part-gemmy rich chrome green pair of Chrome Dravite crystals measuring to 3.3 cm tall, with adjacent well-defined terminations. From a fairly recent find at Nadonjukin in Tanzania, the two intergrown crystals have a lower half of olive-nickel green which abruptly changes to electric limey chrome green.  The termination of one crystal has contact damage, although this is completely natural and displays a re-healed surface.  This delightful small miniature/large thumbnail is mounted vertically on a small square acrylic base.
