Description

Very good, mostly double-terminated strontianite crystals up to 1.3 cm on snow-white, glossy dolomite crystals. A fantastic specimen. This locality possibly provides the best strontianite crystals in Europe.

In order to picture the strontianite crystals with enough contrast I had to darken the pictures. Much better in nature.
