This plate of shale has a number of wardite crystals nicely spaced out on it. Some of the wardite crystals have lazulite crystals inside of them and seem to have exploded while the wardite crystals with none or only a little lazulite in them seem fine. I believe that this is a natural phenomenon of some sort. Nice crystals!
