Mineral Specimen #3591 Millerite on Chlacedony
Kaser Quarry, Ollie, Keokuk Co., Iowa
5.1 x 5.1 x 3.7 cm
A mass of thin wiry crystals of dark colored Millerite rises from a bed of off white Chalcedony. This is from a quarry which has been closed for better than 40 years. The specimen has been glued onto styrofoam in a perky box. Usually, I would remove a specimen from this kind of mounting. However, this will make for safe shipping of this delicate specimen.
The specimen is in very good condition with no appreciable damage.
