Special Info
Type Locality

This is an older specimen from Langban with a Ward's label (see prov. tab). As described in the book "Langban", it occurs in Hausmannite bearing dolomite  & calcite rich matrix - much like this specimen. The Sahlinite itself is light yellow with visible cleavages. Excellent specimen from this incredibly rich mineral deposit. Rare.
