5.1 x 3.3 x 2.2 cm. Arsenopyrite and dolomite are both extremely rare from this famous Peruvian mine. To get both species in an aesthetic small cabinet may be unique. Diverging sprays of splendent metallic arsenopyrite spikes are dramatically and starkly complemented with clusters of pastel-pink etched-looking, foliated manganoan dolomite crystals. Ex Art Soregaroli Collection.
