Limonite psm. Marcasite, Shell (906)


Farafra Oasis, White Desert, Egypt


7,5 x 7 x 5,5 cm


During the past years I was holding many specimens from this location in my hands. At some point you think you can't be suprised anymore. But then I found this one: This is the only specimen I've seen with a shell on it. One side is completly covered with pseudomorphs of limonite after marcasite with very sparp crystals and an excellent structure. The other side shows the shell in the specimens center and gives an idea of one possible way these specimens were grown. The item is in perfect condition and free of damage. A true rarety.
