Here is an excellent example of the world-class orpiment crystals that came out of the Twin Creeks Mine in the early 2000's. This is a beautiful small cabinet piece, with superb flashing luster and large, sharp, undamaged crystals. The biggest crystal is 3.4" tall, and all the orpiments on this specimen are beautifully terminated, with excellent crystal form. The color is a dusky golden yellow, not the brightest example from the find, but it more than makes up for this in the quality and sharpness of the crystals.
