Item Description

Lustrous, botryoidal plate of pearly-white Brucite, on matrix. The banded Brucite has a secondary growth that partially coats the botryoids, which range up to .7 cm across. This secondary coating has an incredible shimmer to it, and is also fluorescent. This uncommon habit for Brucite, at least for Nchwaning II, is very attractive.
