Ex. Charlie Key
Charlie thought this was perhaps the best specimen around, using the phrase "off the charts," and I can say I have not seen better. It wsa supposedly found about 30-40 years ago. It features dozens of SHARP, wine-red crystals of this very rare thallium-rich species that also has a smorgasboard of other elements in it. Here we have several dozen large-for-species crystals to 4 mm.
