|I've seen a lot of Vivianites but not like this one. A single isolated large perfect crystal of the finest possible gem green color. The crystal is nearly flawless throughout, with perfect termination and sitting beautifully upright on a nice matrix of dark yellowish Siderite. Vivianite simply does not get better. It is a startling specimen with the most beautiful emerald green color. This is among the finest known examples, it is definitely in the running for best of species.|

|Vivianite comes from several localities but Bolivia has always been considered the best. They come from a tin mine in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. The mine is at 13,000 feet with an average yearly temperature of 45 degrees and over 200 days of snowfall or frost!|
