A showy and excellent toenail specimen of sharp, lustrous, translucent, cream-colored tarnowitzite crystals to 1.3 cm on matrix with malachite. Tarnowitzite is the lead-rich variety of aragonite. The aesthetic tarnowitzite cluster is complete all-around and is damage-free. The scattered periphery damage is certainly not detracting. 2.9 x 2.4 x 2.1 cm
