Here's something you don't see every day! This is an old 4x4" wooden post from a salt mine in Poland. The base it is mounted to is old wood, but not part of the actual specimen. This section of the beam was cut away and turned into this fascinating display specimen which is covered 360º in white halite crystals. These crystals formed naturally on the beam over an unknown amount of time. The condition is excellent with no damage that we could see anywhere. The halite crystals are up to 3cm in size! 

A great oddity for any mineral collector to have!
