A HUGE BOLEITE crystal, of a size that is seldom reached, 1 square centimeter on the display face! It is complete also on the back, and is thus a floater crystal. This is from the 1970s finds here, after Bill Larson and Ed Swoboda rediscovered the 1890's-era locality. Formerly in the collection of and with label of Willard Perkins, the collector who invented the so-called "Perky Box" for thumbnails.
