Absolutely superb breithauptite prismatic crystals scattered over almost all sides of the specimen. The crystals are forming somewhat nests of irregular form and copper red color and some are beginning to be pseudomorphed by galena. The samples from here could be considered among the world-best. Looks beautiful under the microscope.
