Item Description

A dramatic, CABINET cluster of stout, rounded pillars of gypsum coated with sparkly, brown calcite all on gypsum matrix from an obscure mine in Durango. This is a complete all-around, pristine and visually stunning piece, that is an intergrown cluster of variably sized cave stalactites. We have never seen anything quite like this from any locale. Unique material from the Dave Stoudt Collection # 511. Dave bought this at the Munich Show in 1998, according to his label.
