On a bed of bBladed Valencianite crystals perches a Quartz psuedoimorph after box work Calcite. Quite unique for the location. Valencianite was at one time considered a distinct species of Feldspar. It was later discredited; however, there is a note on mindat that recent research suggests it may indeed be a distinct species of K-Feldspar.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
