Rodalquilarite, Rodalquilarite,

Item number: 27599

The vug in the top of this vuggy dacite matrix is lined with white alunite crystals but more importantly has several large, for the mineral, balls of green-bladed rodalquilarite. The crystals are gemmy-clear green with tiny balls of another mineral, probably mansfieldite on the edges of some of the blades. Quite something!
