These cream-colored Powellites reach about 4 cm on edge and form a giant composite crystalline cluster, the likes of which I have not seen from here before for size and richness! The WHOLE of the specimen is actually composed of Powellite crystals, a richness that you do not see very often. Very good luster and excellent fluorescence, as to be expected (see last photo). These sharp crystals, in excellent condition, display impressively. But the sheer volume f powellite...I just cannot recall seeing another so rich, and I am floored by it. Valued $2500. It is NOT your common Indian specimen, and is part of the 200-piece high-grade India collection built by Charlie over 30 years of picking minerals.
