This is a spectacular locality piece, for what it is, surely dating to the late 1800s. The piece features gemmy, root-beer colored crystals to an inch! They are glassy and lustrous, and mostly undamaged! This specimen is a major locality piece, as such rich specimens are still only rarely found, to this day. The specimen label is in the handwriting of George Frederick Kunz, who supplied it to the NY State Mineralogical Museum in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
