Inyoite With Meyerhofferite
Cabinet, 9.6 x 8.7 x 4.5 cm
Monte Azul, Plano, Argentina
A razor-sharp 9 x 8 x 3 cm crystal here is one of the largest of the lot and of the find, and it is partially invested with the Meyerhofferite I like because the growths inside create such a stark contrast to the enclosing clear inyoite crystal itself. As well, freestanding meyerhofferite (or perhaps ulexite?) crystals on one side o the piece seem to be novel for this pocket. It is very hard to convey this in photos - in person, the piece is very impressive both for overall size, impact, and aesthetics.
