A large massive piece of crystalline Willemite that has a bright green-yellow color, which was tricky to capture on camera, that fluoresces a blinding highlighter green-yellow under UV light. Certainly a unique piece!

Comes with an old John Albanese with the number 5286, which matches the small tag glued to the bottom of the specimen, giving it great provenance.
