This beautiful specimen of goethite shows an intricate pattern of stalactitic growth, almost as if thousands of tiny spheres were gluded to the strands of a cobweb. The pattern is that detailed and intricate. Some areas have solid sheets of goethite (still coated with thousands of tiny spheres). Adding to its beauty is the irridescent coating which gives a full rainbow of colors to one side of the specimen, although the other side is almost entirely a blue-ish steel gray with hints of purple and green. There is only a tiny bit of damage to this specimen where it was separated from the roof of the cavity in which it was formed.
