Glossy, oil-black micaceous crystal lamellae of the rare iron arsenate Schneiderhohnite populating a cavity within an sulphide ore matrix - in areas displaying a purplish iridescence. The main area of Schneiderhohnite mineralisation covers an area 2cm x 2cm, with the largest crystals to over 1cm which is, frankly, huge for this species. A relatively large specimen for such a rare species. Sits and displays well.
