This is an interesting one! It is a mass of arsenide mineralization showing vermiform safflorite that is studded with skutterudite and small quartz crystals. The extremely sharp skutterudite crystals are mostly 1-2mm but up to 5mm in size. On the back there is an excellent showing of safflorite pseudomorphs after herringbone silver crystals. Very cool specimen!
