The orpiment crystals on this specimen are brilliantly colored, with translucent, almost gemmy crystals to 1/2" that are a brilliant orange color. They have formed in a complex crystal habit, with many brightly lustrous sub-parallel faces. There are almost none of the yellow edges which are found on some specimens. This is a highly sculptural piece, and a very fine miniature-size specimen from this illustrious, one-time occurrence.
