18291 Halite and Trona - $30
Owens Lake, Olancha, Owens Valley, Inyo County, California
Small cabinet - 8.1 x 7.2 x 4.7 cm (3.2 x 2.8 x 1.9 inches)
Weight - 84 grams (0.19 pounds)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

Sharply crystallized halite with excellent pink color, many hoppered crystals, and a trona base. Individual crystal edges reach 2.6 cm. Collected by John Seibel in the summer of 2013. I obtained a group of these from John shortly after they were collected; their color remains good and they show no signs of disintegration, so they appear to be stable. Of course our southern California climate has been rather dry of late so they may have a shorter lifetime in a more humid environment.
