  • Lots to look at on this specimen! There is a sharp 5mm weloganite crystal on one side of the vug that has some very good clusters of dresserite on it. There are numerous sharp, very transparent, colourless dawsonite crystals throughout the vug. Very difficult for me to photograph them with my set-up due to their clarity. At one end of the vug is a sharp, highly lustrous, half-galena crystal. Interesting one!!

  • A vug takes up much of the front. It is pretty well lined with sharp, prismatic dawsonite crystals and sprays of smaller dawsonite crystals. Really photogenic!!

  • The front of this specimen is a quartz-calcite vug that is largely over-crystallized by clusters of small purple fluorite crystals. This makes a wonderful back-drop for hundreds of beautiful, prismatic dawsonite crystals as individual, larger crystals and smaller sprays. The dawsonite crystals are all sharply terminated, colourless and gemmy! Beautiful specimen of a rare mineral.
