A rich, major specimen of the species, nearly solid with Gartrellite. Gartrellite is a mineral that was recently discovered (1990) and its presentation up until now is not that great by common aesthetic standards. Usually it is presented as dull crusts of fine-grained coatings from other locales. This is a good, showy, display-worthy specimen. Minor duftite is in association. Joe Budd photos
