Description

Buyer pays the mining / Rarible
This was my first NFT and is not listed on OpenSea/Polyon, but on Rarible.
I accidentialy did not uncheck the "Buyer pays for mining".
So when creating this, it was not mined, and it will be mined by the buyer (paying the cost of creating the blockchain). That was obviously not my plan, as I wish you have control of the mining cost. But it is impossible to change it now.

Also the text says it is from Eskiseher, which is wrong (as I used paste/copy from another mineral) and thought I was only doing a test version.

The correct location is Mugla Province (Turkey)



Description
The crystal on the picture is called Diaspore. This is a seldom and highly valuable crystal, that is also used for gems. The best quality is found in the Mugla province in Turkey, where this specimen was also found. The size of the original specimen is 92x165x140 mm (1.7 kg) and it is on display in my private collection (not for sale).

If great quality and from the right mine, these ones also go under the name Zultanite. And with gem quality the price could be well over $1000 pr carat (0.2 gram)

Some of the diaspore from Turkey also has the uniqe ability to change color depending on the light. I managed to capture both green and red color in this picture. The specimen also has a lot of needles of Bauxite crystals.

It is extreme to have such a big specimen with Diaspore, and I will never put the specimen out for sale. However I hope you appreciate the digital art I made.
