Description

Interesting and rare example of orpiment from the Noske collection. Botryoidal orange brown orpiment settles on matrix or forms aggregates. According to the label the specimen comes from Jachymov in Bohemia and it is the first Orpiment of this kind I have seen up to now from there. Last year I encounterd smaller similar specimens from Felsöbanya / Baia Sprie.
