The longest Jeremejevite ever ?
Last Updated: 30th Dec 2007
It was Friday afternoon & all the miners from the Erongo gather at the petrol station outside Usakos to sell their finds, we was sitting in the 4x4 when a miner came up to us & showed us a very long Jeremejevite crystal, it was about 7/8cm, I wanted it & so did a friend, we was discussing who was going to get it when the miner dropped it, of course it broke in two & he promptly picked it up & said 'everyone is happy a piece each for the same price'. The miner did not understand the significance of the 'loss' & why we were no longer interested in the crystal, to-date the longest recorded crystal is 6cm!
