Ex. Steve Pullman, Ex. California Academy of Sciences

CaAl2(CO3)2(OH)4·3H2O


Please to note: only Alumohydrocalcite is listed for the location on mindat. However, this was in a box with 3 other specimens with a California Academy of Sciences label which also listed Hydromagnesite (the other specimens have been sold and the label went with the largest specimen). There are different layers found on the specimen, but is unclear which is which species because they are similar in appearance. There is a strong likelihood the lighter colored material is the Hydromagnesite.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: The upper layer is missing on many of the spherical aggregates exposing the underlying lighter colored material.
