Dimensions: 7 cm x 5.5 cm x 3.7 cm

7.0 x 5.5 x 3.7 cm. Very ROBUST, upright crystals to 2 cm perched upon a crust of smaller, more fragile crystals, makes this a rare find from the mine, and with interesting aesthetics. The color is a deep red, especially for this locality, but muted with tinge of brown. It has just one small cleave off the back corner of the large leftmost crystal. It is significant for the unusual habit and thickness of the crystals, showing an unusual extra development of the narrow crystal axis, and it displays very nicely.
