This nodule of fuchsite is pale and impure on the outside, but a very pretty and deep green on the inside. The interior is perfect for fuchsite, with a myriad tiny crystals that are individually transparent and very lustrous. Fuschite specimens tend to be massive and flaky, but I find this one to be much more interesting and appealing.
