Bright grass-green microcrystalline botryoidal conichalcite coating matrix. Also present is crystalline white calcite, which fluoresces light yellow under shortwave and midwave UV light. The calcite crystals are flattened, due to restricted growth in a narrow fissure. An unidentified thin, colorless mineral coating conichalcite (just to the right of the calcite in the photo) fluoresces bright yellow-green under SW-MW-LW UV, and is possibly opal-AN, variety Hyalite.
