  • A superb specimen of this rare nickel-arsenic-sulphur mineral, showing very well formed octahedral crystals on massive gersdorffite and nickeline. Could be other arsenides present, as well. The specimen is highlighted by a 24mm crystal in the middle of the piece. Displays very well!

  • This large, cabinet specimen has a cavity in the middle lined by very well formed gersdorffite crystals with a little annabergite-stained calcite, some of which has been etched away. The crystals are lustrous and show predominately the octahedron, some with small cubic modifications. Really nice!
