Inyoite - Sold

Inyoite is a calcium borate, a more hydrated version of meyerhofferite. Schaller (1916) named the mineral after Inyo County, California, where the first material was found. This is a choice cluster of crystals to 8 by 3 mm, with good transparency and luster. Such an example is rare from California, recently surpassed in quality by a find in Argentina. Good locality piece!
