A dramatic and colorful specimen from an unknown specific locality near Knoxville Iowa (perhaps the Pershing Mine?). A search of the web finds no photos of such distinction although the one picture on mindat has the brown microcrystals exhibited here. The second coating of lineated spherical aggregates with rich honey color really makes this piece outstanding. Originally sold by Dan Weinrich to Kenny in 2016. Ex Kenny Gay collection.
Locality: Knoxville, Marion County, Iowa
Composition: calcium carbonate
