A very fine gypsum cluster growing on dolomite. I don't know if you can consider this to be a single crystal or a cluster. Apparently these kind of forms can easily be bent when wet to increase the curvature of the crystal. Bought on the Nautilus Mineral Fair Photographer: Verschuren Louis Collection: Costes Tom
