A brown sandstone matrix hosts a forest of translucent, somewhat curved gypsum 'sprouts'' some thin, some stout. Individual sprouts reach 4.4 cm in length. Damage is minimal, an exceptional state given the fragility of these sprouts and the softness of gypsum. Displays quite nicely as shown without needing external support.
