ID: CC14308
An excellent specimen of the rare species Anorpiment occurring as greenish-yellow powdery coatings associated with orange-yellow Orpiment. Anorpiment and Orpiment are polymorphous, meaning they have the same chemical formula (As2S3), but different crystallography.  A fine example of these two dimorphs from the Palomo mine in Castrovirreyna Province, Peru.
