Wonderful euhedral crystals of the rare and ordered (CaMn) intermediate member of the Pectolite-Serandite. Brought to light in 2013, they were first thought to be bustamite, then erroneously labeled a new mineral (Marshallsussmanite), it was all corrected in 2018. Exceptional example of the mineral.
