A classic vivianite specimen from this locality that was closed in the 60’s. Most of the good specimens came out in the 40’s and 50’s. Here is a cluster of crystals with one, very gemmy crystal sitting vertically and right in the center of the piece. It is transparent, terminated, measures 2.7 cm and is green with a purple tip.
