The Vivianites from Tomokoni are unarguably some of the finest quality Vivianite specimens from any Bolivian locality. They are some of the sharpest, gemmiest and most LUSTROUS examples ever seen from anywhere in Bolivia.
This large thumbnail size piece is a sharp, lustrous, dark emerald green, sword shaped "textbook" crystal of Vivianite with a bit of minor attached Sandstone on the base. It's important to note that over 75% of the specimens from this find have had SERIOUS damage problems. This crystal is in great shape compared to the vast majority of what was found. I have to stress how sharp and lustrous (and often gemmy) the crystals from Tomokoni are, as there are lots of localities for Vivianite in the world, but not many with crystals of this quality.
Locality: Tomokoni adit, Canutillos Mine, Colavi, Saavedra Province, Potosi Department, Bolivia
