A very rich and (relatively) beautiful specimen of this rare species from the famous borate deposits at Lake Inder! Glistening, translucent aggregates to just under 1 cm abound on this 3-dimensional matrix. For some reason, pinnoite does not crystallize well at other fmaous boron deposits such as in California. These are the best I have seen on the market, as a general rule, for the species. This particular piece is the only one I have had in several years.
