‘This is not from any newer or recent find in Sapo Mine, this is very old material from an old collection in Vienna, discovered in the early 80s. It looks different to Sapo, habit is more blocky, crystals are more thick and color is much darker, nearly black but with dark olive green color. It seems to have an internal structure. What you see is not on the surface, no cracks or damages – these are internal reflections.’
