Mina Ojuela, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico
4.1 x 4.1 x 3.7 cm
Ex. Gary Beaman, purchased from Dakota Matrix
A very nice Cuprian Austinite specimen composed of numerous, rounded crystals which are a deep, emerald green in color. Note: the color is more uniform in real life than the pictures without the yellowish tint on the edges - in other words, the color of the crystals is more uniformly like the darker regions in the pictures. The crystals are composed of small, parallel, sub crystals giving the crystals a high, silky luster. This high luster gives the specimen quite a bit of luster. The crystals are translucent and very nice for the species. Some of the crystals have wedge shaped terminations.
Condition: Very Good to Excellent
Flaws: There are two areas where the crystals are incomplete. With reference to the first pictures, one area is on the far left of the specimen, at the bottom edge of the crystals. The other area is on the far right.
