Here is an excellent specimen of KAMMERERITE (formally, CHROMIAN CLINICHLORE). Kammererite is the chrome rich variety of the micaceous mineral clinochlore. It has been found in many places around the world but by far the best specimens come from Turkey. The crystals on this beauty are sharp and have a pointed crystal habit that is characteristic of material from the classic (long closed) locality Kop Daglari, East Anatolia, Turkey. We spotted this old-time piece at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show in the display of a Turkish dealer who was set up at the Days Inn Show. He collected this specimen himself back in 1991, just days before the mine closed.
