Ex. Wolfgang Henkel

[Ca4Si6O15(OH)2·2H2O]·3H2O


Torbermorite from this location was reclassified as Kenotormerite by the IMA in 2014. Composed of long, thin, needle like crystals with a silky luster and offwihte in color. The German from Woflgang Henkel's label translate to " The aggregate is one of the largest crystals available ". If that is the case, this would be even more so for Kenotobermorite.

Condition: Good

Flaws: The crystals are quite fragile; small fragments fall from the specimen when handled. There are incomplete crystals.
