Description:Mineral specimens of any species are RARE from this less well-known mountain range in Elko County. This fantastic and colorful large segmented septarian concretion is from the Dr. Barratt Phillips Collectin. The sparkly septa or partitions are composed of tiny small glassy calcite rhombs and quartz. The striking, surreal "rooms" or voids are covered with bright hematite or iron oxides. The vertical view highlights the numerous segmented "rooms". The base of the concretion gives no hint of the fantastic hollow interior of this RARE, unusual and very interesting large specimen from Nevada.
