Description

Rich miniature of spheroidal mesolite crystals in altered basaltic matrix. The outer part of the spheres is creamy, while the inner radial structure, revealed in a few open individuals, is candid white.
A real classic from Sicily, and quite an oldtimer too, as this is dated back to the 70s. In excellent conditions, very rich for the locality.
