This is a piece of solid millerite, on one half, showing excellent cleavage.Thick cleavages, NOT thin acicular or hairy crystals! We have seen cleavable millerite from the Sudbury area recently but this is a sample from an old locality. there was an article written about the Marbridge Mine, in the Mineralogical Record, back in 1976, Volume 7, #4, (July-August) issue with pictures of very similar millerite. Very cool! s
