12.9 x 8.1 x 2.0 cm. An attractive rolling plate of botryoidal native arsenic, with a big bubbly growth atop. Minor cracking in some botryoids, as in some other specimens, but the cracks do not go through the piece. From a large but highly unusual find of pure arsenic in this historic mine, found in summer of 2013. This is of the quality to rival the old German specimens of native arsenic.
