Fairfieldite from the Foote takes many forms, and one could aspire to have a collection of just Fairfieldite. The texture can be opaque, and chalky or supremely lustrous, clear, yellow or pink. This piece has dense clusters with individual crystals radiating in haphazard directions. The crystals are soft ping and lustrous. Excellent.
