This is a lovely group of sharp, lustrous, gemmy, yellow prismatic Mimetite crystals oriented into a stalactitic formation around a hollow cast after (?). Not the easiest specimen to photograph, but you can see in the closeup that one of the crystals is actually doubly-terminated! You do not see many Mimetites like this on the market from Tsuemb. Valued at $1300-$1600.
