This is a very old, classic, specimen probably dating from the 1950's. It's a hemimorphite cast with 3 holes going through it where some other mineral once existed but has dissolved away. It appears the previous mineral that filled the cast was some sort of stalactite-shaped formation. The orange-brown substance lining the inner wall of the cast is limonite. A very unique and unusual specimen!

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
