Description

Well formed "blue" baryte crystals with metastibnite inclusions, and a lot of small stibnite sprays.
The colour is the inclusions was different from what is common in this location, so I have it checked EDS. According to analyses the barirte crystals are coloured by metastibnite, not realgar. So I thik this is a very unique specimen.
