Exceedingly rare, this mineral species normally occurs as microcrystals or as gray rubble in rock. This aesthetic cluster features one of the finest, if not perhaps THE finest, Sekaninaite crystal (so far as Herb Obodda knows, and I have to trust him on this point). Perched on a natural pedestal of Quartz and Mica, the huge and complete crystal perched atop is a stereotypically textbook crystal that measures 6 cm across and deep, 5.8 cm tall I have not seen it's equal, from anywhere. Neither has Obodda. Long in his collection, he brought this out himself long ago (sometime in the 1990s).
