Sharply terminated, pale pink crystals of the rare sulphate yavapaiite grown on a maze of white, hairy halotrichite with tabular crystals of coquimbite or aluminocoquimbite.

The low-temperature fumarole of Grotta dell'Allume, before the locality was destroyed for ill-understood safety reasons, has produced unique specimens of finely crystallized sulphate minerals. Very delicate but stable at room conditions.
