Description

Sprays of acicular light yellow valentinite combined with a relatively large spray (darker yellow) of flat terminated valentinite crystals, only a few specimens in this find had this combination. A very pretty specimen that will also ship safely glued to a black bottom of a perspex box. Very richly covered and well developed.
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.
