The Paloma Mine has been closed for a long time, but was being worked in 2015 for specimen material by freelance miners. This is one of the prizes from this collecting: a large cabinet-sized specimen of rich, dark red realgar. There is one lone calcite crystal and several clear quartz crystals tucked in amongst the realgar crystals, which are up .4" across.
