The top of the dyscrasite is largely covered with individual crystals, balls or blankets of silvery safflorite in different areas of the dyscrasite. A rich piece with interesting mineralogy. Has a hand written label stating "Safflorit xl mit Dyskrasit, Hartenstein". Nice one from a classic old locality!!
