A rare thumbnail-sized 'floater' crystal of the rare Copper Iodide mineral Marshite. This specimen is so fresh and properly stored that it remains colourless. The crystals from this locale are amongst the best seen in the world and this floater crystal is a great example of the species displaying a pearly lustre and complex prism faces.
