Miniature, 4.2 x 3.6 x 2.0 cm

An EXCELLENT and very UNCOMMON specimen from the Wessels Mine of South Africa of acicular inesite enclosed in a water-clear gypsum cleavage fragment, which has several well-developed faces. The back of the piece has a real bonus. Gemmy apophyllite crystals are nestled in milky and water-clear quartz crystals. 4.2 x 3.6 x 2.0 cm
