Countless tiny Olivenite crystals rest in a small hollow in the shale base of this hand specimen. These crystals measure less than 1 mm in length, so at least a loupe is needed to study them. Those within the protective hollow are in very good condition and likely have good orthorhombic form. All have a deep green color and a pearly luster, and are transparent.
