The realgar crystals on this specimen are a rich, fire-engine red color, contrasting nicely with the clear quartz and golden pyrite that cover the matrix. I purchased this piece from a Peruvian dealer who was set up at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show in Arizona. The overall impresssion created by the piece is very dramatic-it has a very strong presence, and the brilliant, exceptionally sharp, brilliantly colorful realgar crystals are unusual and striking.
