  • Wardite, Childrenite
  • 9.5x5.4x2.0 cm
  • Largest Crystal Size: 9mm
  • $150.00
  • Rapid Creek

  • Yukon, Canada
  • A very nice plate of sharp wardite crystals with many great crystals of wardite on it. In between and on some of the sides of wardite crystals are thousands of tiny childrenite crystals. There is one zone at the bottom left where the vein pinched down and the crystals are contacted but the rest formed in a free space. Excellent.

  • $125.00
  • Rapid Creek

  • Yukon, Canada
  • This plate of shale has a number of wardite crystals nicely spaced out on it. Some of the wardite crystals have lazulite crystals inside of them and seem to have exploded while the wardite crystals with none or only a little lazulite in them seem fine. I believe that this is a natural phenomenon of some sort. Nice crystals!
