25 x 6.5 x 1.5 cmNote on the last two sizes: because of the shape of the specimen, it is a little difficult to give an exact size. The second size measures the furtherst from either side, the specimen ranges from less than a cm up to 3.8 cm in width in places. The third measurement is where it is the thickest; however, most of the specimen averages 0.5 cm in thickness.

An elongated, dendritic Copper crystal group with minor attached white Barite. Interstingly, the Barite fluoresces a pink/orange color under SW UV. The flurescence is not very bright, but it very unusual for Barite to fluoresce.
Flaws: The Copper crystals are in very good condition. Most of the Barite has cleaved surfaces.
