This hand specimen consists of numerous sprays of green gormanite crystals. The individual needles are extremely fine, which is apparent by sight where the sprays are visible from their sides, and by touch where only the tops are visible. In this case, the touch feels like pumice. This specimen is from an unusual location - gormanite is better known from Canada.
