Meyerhofferite is a rare borate and this excellent matrix specimen from the Jaime Bird Collection is from the well-known Type Locality - the Mount Blanco Mine in Death Valley. Transparent to translucent, lustrous, colorless blades to 1.2 cm richly and aesthetically cover both sides of the sculptural matrix. The crystals remind me of snowflake cerussite from Tsumeb. Old material. Ex. Robert Whitmore Collection.
