This is a very nice (although small) specimen of stellerite. A single crystal/cluster of stellerite with a radial growth habit and smooth rounded terminations sits in a cavity in a host rock. The stellerite appears white and translucent, but I believe that the individual crystals are likely colorless and transparent, but this can not be seen even with my loupe. The cavity is lined with a druze of transparent colorless apophyllite crystals over a layer of a translucent gray mineral, giving a gray sparkly appearance. Visible through the apophyllite are a half-dozen balls of something green - it is almost certainly prehnite, but it is not exposed and thus I cannot be certain.
