Description

Stalactiotic goethite - 'brauner glaskopf' - from the Harz mountains. This would be pretty common material if not for the very beautiful iridescent part (one of the two main views). The iridescent colors are really exceptional for that locality and can almost compare to specimens from Tharsis/Spain.
