6 specimens within a corked glass tube. The specimens are labeled Minervite which is the name associated with specimens from the caves at Grotte de Minerve, Aude, Hérault, France (see http://www.mindat.org/min-10951.html). Because the specimens are being posted to the website, they are being removed from the tube because they cannot be safely shipped as they are. They are being mounted as individual thumbnail specimens. From the Steve Pullman collection. Note: the measurements are for the glass tube not including the cork.
