ID: CC2256

Well formed crystals of classic Fallowfield Mine Witherite with Alstonite. The Witherite crystals display the repeat growth habit on the hexagonal prism faces terminated by the sharply formed hexagonal pyramid. More than ten crystals form a cluster, with individual crystals measuring to nearly 3cm tall on a thin druse of white Alstonite. The Witherites are the typical near translucent creamy white and with an excellent luster for the species. A very rich specimen, from a location which produces some of the world's best specimens.
