Ex. Wolfgang Henkel
Larderellite is a very rare species which has only been found at two locations, both of which are in Italy. This is a very large specimen of this mineral and consists of a mass of micro crystals with a complex growth pattern with empty areas in the middle of the specimen.
Flaws: No real damage; however, small crumbs fall from the specimen when handled which will likely happen when shipped. Utmost care will be taken when packing the specimen.
