Rauenthalite- type locale
Gabe Gottes Mine, Ste-Marie-aux-Mines, Haut Rhin
5.7 x 3.5 x 2.3 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
Late Summer 2018
From the type locale at Ste-Marie-Aux-Mines, several areas of white acicular crystals scattered on matrix. Not an esthetic specie (though not really ugly either...), but rare, and an unusually large piece, most specimens are small, often under 1mm. Ex William Hladysz collection.
