Very nice example of a hard-to-find species in good crystals, since they tend to etch or dissolve away and leave you without euhedral and 3-dimensional crystals often enough. THIS ONE, however, has sharp faces and a real termination! This tabular crystal is sharp, has good luster, and is partially gemmy. As good a Hambergite as you are likely to find from any locality, particularly from this mine.
