Special Info
Type & Only Locality,Author's Material

Talk about rare - this little thing is about .25mm in a capsule, but shows well in the photos - a nice ice blue. It has an Excalibur label, so it might be one of the specimens of the three on Mindat. The backside states it was "author's material".
