There are several fine localities in North Carolina for excellent pyrophyllite crystals, but the old Gerhardt Mine near Staley in Randolph County, North Carolina produced a very distinctive and beautiful variety of snow white radial crystals with a light pinkish tint on selected faces.  This specimen is a fine example in excellent condition measuring 4.5 x 4 x 2 inches (11.4 x 10.1 x 5 cm).  Locality has long been closed to collecting and specimens are now rare.
