Light gray to white colored Wollastonite with interspersed veins of gray/green colored Calcite and minor orange/brown Andradite. Ex. Steve Pullman obtained by trade with California Academy of Sciences, January, 2006. Collected by William J. Keith, geologist USGS, April, 1996. Fluoresces a light yellow under both LW and SW. UV photo was taken under SW where there is also a small patch of bright green of an unidentified material. Note: the specimen is from a mine run flat in which there was a business card of Keith's with a list a species found and a Pullman label. Because there was only one of each, this specimen comes with a photo copy of both since the original are going with an Andradite specimen from the location.
