A doubly terminated, sharp crystal of the very rare species wiluite, from the Type Locality. This lustrous, dark olive-green, floater crystal is pristine. One termination has a pyramidal termination and the other end is a modified pinacoid. Very interesting. These crystals originally sold as vesuvianite, until they were determined to be a new species. Ex. Carlton Davis Collection.
