Tiny but sparkling, jet black and lustrous perovskite 'cubes' (the species is actually orthorhombic) cover a portion of the rock matrix, with the largest perovskite measuring 2.2 mm. Of the 640 Dallas Gem Mine photos hosted on Mindat, 362 include the blue triangle (but that's no surprise). However perovskite is uncommon there; Mindat boasts only three photos of this species at the locality. Overall condition is quite good. Could be trimmed a bit without loss.
