Excellent specimen of nicely crystallized Chondrodite. The largest crystal is about 1.5cm. The large cluster is 2.5cm wide. The faces were are to capture on my instant poleroid, but you can make out a few. It comes with an old handwritten label stating from "P. Zodac via L. Conklin. 7/72"So, kind of a historic piece.  Please see the prov. tab.
