Semseyite is an uncommon lead, antimony sulfosalt, seldom found in well-formed crystal groups. This is an excellent, rich vug filled with clusters of sharp sprays of lightly iridescent, metallic-luster semseyite blades on sphalerite matrix. From near the Type Locality. The card with the piece states that it was acquired from Larry Conklin in 1974.
