Krohnkite

ID: CC2915

Two rich veins (to 1.5cm wide) of the rare Copper mineral Krohnkite are seen running the length of the specimen. Several cavities in the veins display crystals of Krohnkite to 0.5cm, in blocky and bladed forms. An excellent specimen from the mine, the Krohnkite having the typical lustre and translucent blue colour.
