Description

Unusually crystalized and mint colored halite stalactite with atacamite. The crystals are interlaced, with a mint colored thread along the stalactite. The faces show a very lustrous square structure. The stalactite is bent in both directions. The specimen appears very cold due to the mint colored cover of the halite. Very aesthetic piece, no significant damage to report. Hard to catch in a photo and much better in person.
