Description

Amazing quality gypsum specimen from the Lubin Copper mine, Poland. Huge sharply formed crystals with nice luster. Two generation of gypsum crystals which grew from both sides. It was growing in shallow pools at the depth of more than 3,200 feet below the surface from where it was excavated recently.

So intensive and vivid bluish-green colour is extremely rare! 

Colour caused by rare herbertsmithite inclusions.
