Two, large, slightly offset, tabular crystals exhibit parallel growth with superb, glassy luster and gemminess. An added bonus for this colorless, uncommon potassium, sodium, sulfate is the phantom in the center of the most forward crystal, which measures 6 cm across. Contact is present at the bottom of the crystals and some on the back side, but this is diminished by the sheer beauty and size of the crystals along with their superb form.
