A very large and rich specimen of the rare hydrated copper sulfate langite, from Eastern Europe. It is better known from the type locality of Cornwall, England, and from Chile, though specimens have also come from this locality and another called Spania Dolina in Slovakia. Much of the display face of this specimen is covered with these deep turquoise-colored microcrystals.
