Variscite on Albite

ID: CC840

Variscite is a relatively rare mineral, especially the red coloured variety. Vugs in the white Albite are richly covered with eye catching blood red Variscite that contrasts with the white Albite and black host rock. The crystals are in spheroidal clusters to 2mm, with sparkling vitreous lustre. From the 2006 find.
