ID: CC2106
A matrix of chocolate coloured Siderite crystals to 1.2 cm hosts a rich nest of inter-woven metallic-grey hair-like acicular needles of the rare lead-antimony sulphosalt mineral Dadsonite. The two minerals contrast well to make a rich and well-balanced miniature.  The specimen is mounted on a small clear acrylic base and it is sensible to handle the specimen by this to avoid contact and damage to the delicate Dadsonite crystal morphology.
