The specimen was collected by me, on a mineral collecting trip with Frank Roberts looking for Malachite. I had thought the specimen was Malachite, until noticing the hay stack ..spray of acicular brochantite crystals. Frank confirmed that it was in fact, Brochantite. Since then, smaller crystals have been found, but no specimens of this size that we know of.
