Yellow Ettringite has formed a bridge between two stacks of white Calcite crystals which are joined at the base. The Ettringite is has not formed discrete crystals but is rather a massive material. The Calcite is composed of many parallel stacked crystals and has a high luster. The specimen is in good condition with the exception of small innteral cleaves within the Calcite.
