7.0 x 6.8 x 5.4 cm. A striking, sculptural and excellent 3-dimensional combination from this famous Santa Eulalia mine. Water-clear, terminated, stacked, parallel-growth, gypsum blades are dramatically overgrown on goethite pinnacles. The smaller, straw-yellow, iron oxide-tinted gypsums add color and character to this choice combination from the Bob Trimingham Collection.
