Specimen # 201176
Mineral: Wavellite
Location: National Limestone Quarry No. 2, Lime Ridge, Mount Pleasant Mills, Perry Twp., Snyder Co., Pennsylvania, USA
Size: 5.3 x 4.1 x 3.5 cm


Beautiful green balls of wavellite crystals from Lime Ridge. Under magnification one can easily see the myriad of lustrous terminations forming the surfaces of the balls, and without magnification, they sparkle brightly under the lights. A few of the wavellite balls are partial, and in these one can easily see the radiating structure. In excellent condition – four balls are partial.  From the John S. White Pennsylvania Collection.
