I thought I knew all the crystallized borates in specimen quality, and I was wrong. This is a magnesium borate species that does, apparently, come in good crystals. This is the first specimen of Szaibelyite I have seen. It is present as terminated large crystals to 1.2 cm, in a nice showy cluster of beautiful crystals. A display-sized specimen, I am tempted to trim in half to make two of them...
