This interesting specimen consists of a Goethite epimorph of several selenite crystals. The Goethite formed around the selenite prisms, which then eroded away, leaving "molds" of their shapes. From the flattened surfaces that surrounded the selenites, I can count partial "molds" that were left behind by at least 20 different crystals. The Goethite material shows no actual crystal form of its own, but some protrusions are definitely botryoidal. It has brown or black color and is completely dull in luster. A small amount of selenite remains , but there is no actual host rock present.
