Description

Gypsum from Switzerland is rather unusual in the first place. This very specimen displays elongated gypsum crystals on grey gypsum-clay matrix matrix. Crystals are well developed, mostly transparent and with good luster. One crystal displays a swallowtail twin.

Sporadically spotted on the market, especially on that size. Back and one side of the specimen were sawn for an optimal display.
