Large specimen of Wavellite with crystal groups on the front, back, right faces. The main display face has well separated hemispheres of Wavellite to 1.2cm wide. I like the perfect rounded hemispheres on the front, but with Wavellite I also like the flat crystal groups that show the radial crystal structures, and this one has that style on the right face. So you get both styles in one specimen. Sawcut on bottom for a sturdy display.
