Searles Lake, San Bernardino County, California, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 5.4 x 4.6 cm
Ex. Al Ordway
From the type locality for hanksite, this SHARP specimen features a large, doubly terminated, translucent hanksite crystal, 5.7 cm across that exhibits matte luster. THIS IS very GEMMY and transparent! The large crystal sits perfectly on a smaller one which acts as a pedestal. Self-collected by Al Ordway over many trips to this locality. NOTE: these are coated with mineral oil to preserve them from dehydration in humid environments - best kept in cool, dry environments.
