This beauty weighs in at an ounce over 40 pounds and measures 29.2cm across x 17.8cm high x 12.7cm deep (11.5in x 7in x 5in).
The only larger and, perhaps, better specimen from the "Laker Pocket" resides in the Seaman Mineral Museum and weighs 90 pounds.
This specimen could certainly be the center of any mineral cabinet and enhance even the finest mineral collection.
