Comment: Snow white hemispherical crystal groupings of strontianite to 2 cm in diameter are set nicely about this 11.2 x 9.8 x 5.1 cm matrix. Minor damage is present to one of the crystallized hemispheres that is on the extreme edge of the matrix. All of the prominent groups are undamaged. This is really quite good for the species at this locality.

Minerals: Strontianite (SrCO3)
