Descloisite Berg Aukus

Berg Aukas Mine, Grootfontein, Otavi Mountain Land, Namibia

This is an excellent, old specimen from this classic locality.  There are no contact points or matrix; the underside is all microcrystalline.  The crystals start as a root beer going to a deep red, and the tops become a burnt black.  I purchased this in Namibia from A.W. Jooste who collected it as a mine surveyor decades ago.
