Here is a special and excellent specimen from this classic locality. The piece is a pseudomorph of romanechite (manganese oxide mineral, possibly combined with other oxides too) after prismatic crystals of selenite. There is an impressice imprint of the dissolved gypsum crystal. The oxide has formed botryoidal aggregates and hosts gorgeous contrasting aragonite!
