This is a very well formed but unusually shaped gypsum crystal. It reminds be of a calcite scalenohedron, but it is distorted with some faces that are striated and rounded, and some surfaces are extremely flat. It is the shape of a hand-axe. There are a dozen or more small areas of minor damage, which could be "erased" with a carefulstream of water, but I prefer the crystal as it is. I do like this specimen, largely because of its unusual and aesthetic shape.
