Vivianite (ex Zinn Coll.)

ID: 5412
Add to OrderNot checked

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. One of the best TNS I have seen from this find.

Xenotime (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3396
Add to OrderNot checked

A very sharp TN specimen of the rare yttrium phosphate xenotime, with excellent luster and a pleasing medium brown color. What makes this TN even even rarer is the fact that we have two crystals in parallel growth (don’t think it’s a twin) which is very unique since most of the time the crystals occur as singles. Super TN!
