Kladno Mine, Libusin, Kladno, Central Bohemia Region, Bohemia, Czech Republic
Ex. Steve Pullman
The Rostite is present on one surface of this specimen as a thin coating of white colorde micro crystals on a mixed sulfate crust. This rare sulfate was first recorded from this location on burning coal dumps which is most likely the source of the specimen.
Flaws: One crystal on the very edge of the specimen is broken (the lowest crystal on the right side of the first picture).
3.7 x 3.4 x 2.2 cm
