H:2.7cm x W:2.5cm x D:1.5cm; Largest Crystal: 0.1cm Bright orange, predominantly massive botryogen (a few terminated crystals) on dark orange, sharp, lustrous parabutlerite crystals with white halotrichite crystals, all on a matrix of greenish yellow massive copiapite. The combination is wonderful under the microscope. The botryogen and halotrichite have been XRD'd by Dr. R. Peterson of the University of Kingston - see http://www.mindat.org/photo-326579.html and http://www.mindat.org/photo-326578.html
