A rich example of this very rare species, composed of solid massive grandidierite with crystal faces on one side. Actually, it is one of the more attractive and well-crystallized examples of this material that I have seen, despite rough edges and a massive back. From the collection of the University of Arizona Museum, purchased in 1975 from a contemporary find here at that time. Joe Budd photos
