One of the best and most important specimens to come out of mine. Consists of major calcite crystals sitting on magnetite quartz base with coating of micro siderites then secondary growth of white transparent calcites and cream coloured dolomites. Some pyrites clusters on quartz on base section. Better in person. Small ding on top caused during explosive charge in mine when adit being driven and specimen exposed on top of blast heap of material. No other specimens found from pocket despite extensive search
