Peru -Quiruvilca Mine, Native Arsenic

The Quiruvilca Mine has always been known for arsenic bearing minerals. I have not seen much native arsenic, though. Here are some fine botryoidal specimens, including some large ones! Also, please note, that there is an article about the Quiruvilca Mine on this website from when I visited this fascinating mine earlier in 2013. Have a look!
