Hexagonal plates of pyrrhotite with pale lavender fluorite and galena. Both sulfides are covered with a thin layer of cerussite, and on the galena small grey blocky cerussite can be seen as well. Unfortunately only Plaka is known of the locality, but not the exact mine. Camera: Nikon D7000 mounted on a WILD M420 Macroscope Stacking: composed of 67 pictures with Zerene Stacker, Pyramid algorithm FOV: 5 mm
