This is an interesting, different one! Very elongated lobes of nickeline are coated with silver-grey safflorite crystals. The lobes are mostly safflorite but have narrow, hollow interiors that may have been filled with silver or some other mineral, at some time. The nickeline would then be some sort of pseudomorph. Looks great, anyway!
