ID: CC8391

A showy plate of very fine and undamaged Descloizite crystals with high lustre and gemmy clove brown in transmitted light.  From the Berg Aukas mine in the Grootfontein District of Namibia, this yet another example of the seemingly endless habits and associations that Descloizite takes at this locality.  The light grey carbonate matrix is completely coated with lozenge-shaped tabular crystals, with all the larger about 0.9 x 0.8 cm.  Many of the crystals have a preferential light coating of snow-white micro-Dolomite crystals.  A great Descloizite from the classic Berg Aukas Mine.
