Chrome Dravite

ID: CC3056

A fine single crystal specimen of what were originally called Chrome Dravite from the Landanai area of Tanzania. Recent analysis of specimens from the area are now believed to be coloured by a small amount of Vanadium in the crystal structure. The single crystal of Dravite has a lovely intense green colouration, and neon green flecks within the crystal, with excellent lustre to the striated prism faces, and the terminations. An excellent specimen from the area.
