These etched pollucite crystals were recovered from pocket 5 opened underground at Mount Mica in 2009. The pocket also contained tourmaline that was replaced to muscovite. The tourmaline was 'mummified'... left free standing as mica. The colorless pollucite was originally thought to be etched beryl. Examination by XRF confirmed them to be pollucite.
