Villiaumite

ID: CC3822

Excellent cluster of three inter grown Villiaumite crystals with a forth single crystal in a large cavity in a Miarolitic Phonolite. Sides of the cavity are also partly covered in an inter grown druse of Villiamite crystals. Gemmy crystals of Villiaumite measure to 0.7cm with rounded habit, and a fine pinky-orange colour. One or two other cavities also have crystals of Villiaumite in them. Associated within the large cavity are white radial crystal hemispheres of possible Ellingsenite. There are also a number of other undefined species on the specimen, a delight for those that like to go hunting with a microscope. The specimen has been sawn rather than subject the delicate crystals to any hammer blows
