Gypsum, Glauberite
Miniature, 4.4 x 2.9 x 1.8 cm
Camp Verde, Camp Verde District, Yavapai Co., Arizona, USA
A fascinating pseudomorph of gypsum that has replaced the original glauberite crystal, retaining razor-sharp form - the result looking like something man-made or a crystal model in a textbook! It is a pristine floater. This is an old and very unusual Arizona specimen.This Photo was Photo of the Day - 12th Oct 2009
