A highly unusual pollucite crystal we have nicknamed "the brain" for its weird patterning and selective etching of the surface. The crystal is 6 x 4 x 4 cm in size, and perched 3-dimensionally up on bladed cleavelandite matrix. Actually, the piece displays both vertical and horizontally, with equal impact. When vertical, a thin kunzite crystal on one end becomes its base and pokes out at the bottom. This is one of the most unusual pollucite specimens I have seen, and although irregular, it is nevertheless a beautiful specimen. Joe Budd photos. Ex Brent Lockhart Collection
