Had this specimen for many years, knew it was some sort of pseudomorph, but of what?
Lately I read in a old book on Trap rock minerals of New Jersey and came along a photo of Quartz pseudomorph
after Glauberite, looking just like this one.
So now I think it is Chalcedony pseudomorph after Glauberite xls.
