This specimen falls in the category of "possible" as the said mineral, Nelenite, can also be several other minerals. The arrow points to is dirty white substance and contains tiny colorless crystals. There are other more promising areas on the specimen which are more likely to be Nelenite with sugary brown coatings. I will sell as is, with no return if mis-identified. Comes with a Parker Minerals label.
