One surface of this specimen is covered with a mass of flattened, bright blue colored Linarite crystals. The specimen has been mounted with hot glue on an acrylic base to place this at the top. Three of the sides of the specimen are just massive material. The fourth side has and underlying bed of off white colored Quartz with several Fluorite crystals with complex faces which range in color from very pale green to a reddish color due to iron oxides. There are a few more, elongated, flattened Linarite crystals on two of these Fluorite crystals. On the opposite side, there are broken surfaces of Galena crystals in which the cores have altered to unidentified blue/green material.

Condition: Good

Flaws: One side of the specimen, which is depicted in the fourth picture, is massive material with cleaved Fluorite surfaces. On the opposing side, which is depicted in the third picture, there is bruising and some cleaving on two of the Fluorite crystals.
