Beautifully perched on a bit of matrix is a doubly terminated. Glassy and gemmy, lemon-yellow colored crystal of jouravskite, measuring 1.7 cm in length. This is a huge crystal for the species - literally unprecedented, and among the largest freestanding crystals in this pocket; and a significant display-quality thumbnail specimen. Although nearly complete, and displaying phenomenally from the front, it has a small contact at the lower edge on each side (for those to whom that matters, don't lose sight of the overall context here, but it had to be said). The crystal is so fat and gemmy, that stones could be cut from it, and it is among the more dramatic thumbnail specimens of the pocket.
