Sylvite (Floater)
Toenail, 2.9 x 2.2 x 0.8 cm
Stassfurt, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany
Crystals of this potassium chloride are not often found, period. On top of that, rarely do you find Sylvite in a form other than cubes or octahedrons, so this very sharp clear tabular crystal is truly a gem in its own right aside from being gemmy per se. It is sharper and even more lustrous in person. COMPLETE ALL AROUND
