Electric Meatball boulder, Dome Rock Mts, La Paz Co., Arizona
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.7 x 3.1 cm
Ex. Al Ordway
Specimens of any quality seldom turn up today of this species. This piece features small, to 3 mm, but very sharp pseudo-pyramidal crystals. Discovered in an erratic boulder, literally sitting in a farm field, by mineral dealers Jim and Mary Walker in the early 80's as they hiked to another locality, this single productive boulder has not been able to be traced to its origins in the nearby mountains, or duplicated in 30 years since. These sharp, interesting crystals are truly a treasure for the serious collector.
