4.5 x 3.0 x 2.5 cm. Extremely rare. This piece represents the largest of only 5 known specimens from the type locality. Platy, hexagonal, intergrown crystals of nukundamite occur in small vugs. The sawn surface shows nukundamite veinlets and disseminated pyrite. A really excellent miniature of this extremely rare mineral. Richard Kosnar collection label. Ex. Josef Vajdak specimen. Tom and Melissa Campbell photos.
