Description

Sprays of acicular valentinite and a different rare type of this find showing flat terminations. Undamaged sprays! We will hot glue this specimen to a box so it can be safely shipped.
These are from a collecting effort in 2018 in an area that is no longer accessible.
We are happy to combine shipping or stockpile until it makes sense to ship due to shipping price. We only charge actual shipping costs.
