Roweite with Olshanskyite
Roweite with Olshanskyite.
 

ER27AJ0: Aggregate of laminar Roweite crystals, of great size and quality for what has been known of this species, with very well defined faces and edges, and a light creamy color. It is with radial aggregates of colorless, transparent and very bright Olshanskyite crystals and with Calcite. The quality of the specimen is undoubtedly superior to what was previously known, both for the individuality of the crystals and for their sharpness, but also for the size of the crystals and their association with first class Olshanskyite which makes them deserving to be in the best private collections and museums. The sample has been analyzed and we will send a copy of the different species to buyer.
