This is a large specimen of pale pink Koettigite crystals smothering a rock matrix, crystals which are rare for the locality. This long resided in the personal reference collection of Czech classics of Josef Vajdak, a rare species mineral dealer from New York, now 80 years old. Josef says this find was in the 1950s, and considered this a very good example of this rarity for the locale.
