A lemon-yellow, shiny brucite, which forms a radial cluster of tiny tables and chips. This sample is very elegant and fits into the word “ethereal” for a combination of colors and shapes. This mineral is extremely rare in this quality, from new, surprising and productive findings that are left in one small pocket in the process.
