Tilasite is an uncommon Arsenate, first identified in Sweden. This group of four sharp crystals is dusty-red in color, and the largest is about 4 mm. It is rare for Tilasite to get much larger than these crystals, so this is a very good, representative specimen for the species from this very important locale known for its unusual diversity. From Bedogne collection, Milan, 1978.
