This is a magnificent specimen- I've never seen anything like it! Hundreds of dull green Gyrolite orbs are scattered on this piece. They have a dull waxy luster and range in size from less than 1 mm to 0.3(8 mm) in diameter. They are accompanied by a few dozen prehnite globules that are similar in size and luster but are harder to detect due to their pale green-white coloration. These orbs rest on a bed of very fine quartz crystals that are colorless and have good form and transparence, but are difficult to see because of their tiny size (2 mm max. length), and the fact that they grow out of white pipe-straw calcite that is in the form of long, thin, strawlike stalactites and have a triangular cross-section that is easily seen on each end of the piece. I dearly love this specimen, and I was disappointed that there wasn't another one that I could buy for myself.
