A large fishtail twin gypsum crystal from an unusual locality. Cleaved along the back face to reveal at least one fluid/gas bubble inclusion (last photo). The bubble is about 1 mm in diameter, and mobile over a length of 1 cm. A few rubs and bruises are present but not unexpected (gypsum is quite soft).
