This specimen consists of numerous translucent, pale gypsum crystals rising from a flat base. Individual crystals reach 6.7 length, and most exhibit fishtail twinning. Overall condition is quite nice. Previous dealer label with a price of $90. Sits quite well for display without needing a stand. A common mineral from a rather exotic locality. (Perhaps you've not heard of this country before, so here's the Wikipedia link to learn more about this east African nation.)
