Ex Mike Grobin
Partially Fluorescent
Size: Cabinet
16.6x10.0x4.5 cm
Location: Carlsbad Potash District
Eddy County
New Mexico
Description: This piece consists of a matrix that is covered by cubic crystals of colorless translucent to transparent halite crystals to 1.8cm. Reddish inclusions of sylvite are present throughout the piece. I suspect that this specimen originated from the U.S. Potash Company Mine, but cannot say for sure.

The backside of this piece has what appears to be some sort of old wrapping material adhering to the specimen. As there is halite on the piece which could dissolve in the presence of water, I chose not to try and clean it. It is on what I consider the back of this piece. Comes with Mike's card #103. Slightly fluorescent (a few spots) under SW UV light. Enjoy!
