Allophane - historic, classic locale
Tavistock, West Devon
Devon, England
6.5 x 5 x 1.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $380
new year 2021

A very nice, old (1895) English specimen with fine provenance. This is from the famed Wallace Gould Levison collection. His label on the specimen is intact and we will include a photocopy of the page from his collection ledger which indicates he received this from F L Smith on December 7th, 1895. The specimen has blue, green, white and yellow colored Allophane masses. This is every color I know of for Allophane, all on one specimen. Colorful small botryoidal and stalactitic masses best appreciated with good magnification. Allophane is not currently listed by Mindat from Tavistock but it is well-known from the West Devon area. This piece is very high quality. Outstanding historic and colorful UK specimen.
