This is a rather large and dense Vivianite cluster from Peru. There is even some cubic pyrite on the back side with one of the cubes being 8mm. The Vivianite itself has surprisingly good translucency considering how thick and dense it is. The luster is good and the crytals do have a slight mineral film which might be removable with further professional cleaning. As with all Vivianites this one does require a backlight to see the green, and these photos were shot using a single LED backlight in addition to the regular front lighting. The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
