SOLD
A rare validated specimen of the extremely rare mineral species named after Franklin area collector Richard Hauck, consisting of several eye-visible microcrystal clusters on contrasting matrix (pale whitish color), with minor Pyrochroite (Black) in association. Almost seventy new mineral species have been described from the unique Franklin area, and this is one that remains unique to Sterling Hill, to my knowledge.
