A superb, elongated weloganite crystal with excellent luster and color to it. Unusually, it seems to be associated with small, bright, gemmy, bipyramidal quartz crystals. A rare quality, at a fair price for a crystal this size and condition, I felt. These are older (mostly 1970s vintage, I think) and only turn up sporadically now. Joe Budd photos.
