Thank you for your help.  Here are two additional photos, one of the underside matrix, and one of the crystals.  I bought this in Palm Springs at a store who said they didn't know what it was....  I tried to look at photos of hemimorphite, mimetite, quartz, but I have n't located a similar photo.  Thank you again for your help.
