Item Description

Gorgeyite is an ULTRA RARE, hydrated sulfate found in only four localities worldwide. This aesthetic, very sculptural specimen consists of extremely lustrous and gemmy, yellow-tan, multi-pronged crystals, some of which are doubly terminated. Most unusual for the quality and symmetry of the piece! This remote locality has produced best of species. A fine, pristine example I obtained long ago from the Fersman Museum of Moscow. Valued $400
