A sharp, translucent, and brownish yellow orpiment cluster accented with a few tabular, yellow-brown, translucent to transparent barite crystals. Individual orpiment crystals measure up to 3 cm, while the barites top out at around 1.3 cm. A few tiny rubs (orpiment is very soft) but overall condition of the display faces is quite nice. Seldom seen association from a classic American orpiment locality.
