Whewellite is an unusual mineral due to its carbon organic content and is a hydrated calcium oxalate.  This lovely specimen is composed from solid Whewellite which forms nested bright glassy blades, each of pale lemon-cream to light grey and all with plumose, feather-like growth structures on the crystal surfaces.  A great example of Whewellite from Oberschlema in Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany.
