ID: CC2527

Bladed crystals of Schneiderhohnite form a translucent and iridescent black lustrous fan on matrix. Several of the crystal exhibit terminations, and the crystals measure to over 2cm in length. Schneiderhohnite is a rare Arsenite mineral, with a type location of Tsumeb. Crystals of this size, particularly with terminations are very rare, making this an exceptional specimen.
