This is an oustanding specimen of top-quality Szenicsite from the type and only find, with one of the most 3-dimensional and freestanding crystals I have ever seen (and I saw a lot of the material!). Most is massive, with flatlaying crystals upon or comprising the matrix. THIS specimen, however, features a 2 cm freestanding crystal pperched up on a natural 3-dimensional pedestal of Szenicsite! It is really fine, just far above what you would see normally (and now nothing in Szenicsite is common on the market, anyhow)
