Germany is famous for its excellent Erythite, an hydrated cobalt arsenate, and this specimen is from the type locality at Daniel mine in the Schneeberg District of Saxony.  A granular Quartz matrix contains a few vugs, five of which contain crystals of Erythite.  The largest of the vugs has a terrific fan-like group of deep violet-plumb Erythite crystals as stubby blades and long acicular crystals to 1.2 cm.  A good example of Erythite from its type locality.
