A great specimen for this locality! Yellow-brown, 3mm, subhedral crystal of malayaite (see photos) located at the terminus of a vug with well-formed crystals of violet-brown, vitreous crystals of axinite-(Fe) and white calcite. Fine-grained, disseminated malayaite is also visible in the hedenbergite adjacent to the vug; bright green hedenbergite comprises most of the matrix.
