Dimensions: 130 mm x 105 mm x 85 mm
Largest Crystal Size: 50 mm

Large, sharp-edged, lustrous cubes up to 50 mm on edge from an un-named flat near the Hydraulic shaft, but nicknamed "Wheelbarrow Flat" because the diggers abandoned their wheelbarrow there, along with a laminated partial set of plans of the flats. Now all sealed in as this part of the mine is no longer accessible thanks to a new landowner barring access to the shaft.
