A matrix mound of massive to crystalline dolomite hosts abundant small balls of deep green-blue rosasite (often incorrectly identified as malachite). Covering much of the matrix surface and the rosasite is a thin and transparent layer of icy gypsum. Additional opaque, sugary gypsum sprouts 4.2 cm from one corner of the display face. This sprout shows no obvious termination (but then again gypsum growth of this sort never does). Minor, cleaved galena is seen in the core of the matrix. Sits perfectly for display on its naturally flat base. Excellent condition.
