These are the most robust, large ilvaite crystals ever seen - even this piece is fatter and thicker than any ilvaite from other localities I had seen before. It is particularly well-balanced for the size, with gorgeous, jet-black ilvaite with good luster. This is complete all around 360-degrees, and has the complex multiple-termination style that is the less common of several habits from this new find. Small green quartz is associated at the base. This was found in the fall of 2011.
