Phosphophyllite Phosphophyllite

Unificada Mine, Potosi City, Potosi Department, Bolivia

minID: GUG-7F9
40mm x 25mm x 11mm
This small miniature features a razor-sharp, 3-cm-long phosphophyllite twin perched on sparing matrix, displayed to maximal impact. Phosphophyllite of this quality is a colelctor's Holy Grail, so seldom found and, when found, seldom affordable. A piece like this probably came out in the "old era" of the 1950s-1960s, and although modern attempts to find more have proven successful, they have not been of this limpid quality and lustre.Although cleanly repaired in the middle, this is a superb specimen , particularly displayable and balanced. In person, in a case, the color is unique - there is nothing else quite this hue of green-blue in the mineral Kingdoms.
