Inderite

Ex. James and Dawn Minette
SOLD
A well-formed, long prismatic inderite crystal of lustrous and translucent pale white color. The crystal exhibits an unusually sharp termination. Inderite is a hydrated magnesium borate and this is a superb example of the species. It was collected by Jim Minette in 1959 and sold to me by him in around 1998 or so. I then sold it on and got it back recently. It fits well into this larger update of pieces from Jim's contemporary and fellow borate-lover, Al Ordway.
