This wide vug in Daniels Harbour pseudo-breccia is lined with creamy-white, curved dolomite crystals and speckled with gemmy, yellow baryte crystals. There are also lots of small marcasite crystals trapped under the barytes and in between dolomite crystals. Also lots of sphalerite, the ore mineral at NZM, embedded in/under the dolomite. Nice!
