A superb large euhedral crystal (7.8 CM tall) dominates a cluster of smaller crystals. Sharp, complete all around and undamaged, this is an incredible example from the famous Linopolis find thirty years ago. Micro crystals of some unidentified Phosphates are also scattered on the specimen and add a little sparkle. Ex Charles Noll collection, the original label call this Herderite as these wwere known then, now understood to be Hydroxlherderite. Most faces show a glassy luster and are transparent in parts. The color of Hydroxylherderite from here can vary widely, this one is mostly light violet-purple but with some zones of greenish, grey and orange. Display well from all sides and the main crystal is textbook quality. These only appear now from old collections like this.
