Small Cabinet, 5.1 x 3.3 x 2.3 cm
A rich, solid mass of the rare phosphate kryzhanovskite (fairly remarkable for the mass) with embedded crystals of pale greenish-yellow ludlamite. They are not very fine by worldwide standards, but they are large for the locality at nearly 1 cm maximal, and rich overall upon the matrix.
