Description

A wittichenite crystal with an irregular shape is surrounded by a pale yellow alteration mass of probable bismuthite.
At another point there is a metallic-gray prismatic crystal of bismutinite together with green malachite needles and some chalcopyrite crystals in some cavities. It's a small and really not exceptional but a little surprising sample.
