Description

I bought this specimen directly from the source and I was told that this is at the top 5, best examples of this unique pseudomorph from the locality. The jordanite crystals are well formed and have been replaced by galena. Some cadmium rich wurtzite is also present to add to the association. A fine locality rarity!
