Guisborough Priory in Alum Crystals

Peter Appleton from the Skelton History Group has submitted this amazing photograph of Guisborough Priory reproduced in alum crystals

It is about 15-18″ wide and 12″ high and can be seen on display at Gisborough Hall.

Peter in unsure whether this is carved out of alum crystal or whether it was in some manner, cast in a mould.

Access to the crystal was by kind permission of Lord Gisborough.
