Artinite from California is some of the best found anywhere in the world, and this specimen is a very fine example of what's great about the material from this classic locality. The artinite is a bright white color and is crystallized in the acicular habit as thin needles radiating outward from single centers to form intricate, delicate hemispheres that intersected each other as they enlarged. The artinite grew in a protective vug in the matrix, so there is no damage, and makes a lovely display piece.
