This Kammererite specimen reminds me very much of erytherite, just as Dave wrote in the general description. Its color is quite similar, being a deep red-violet, and even the host rock seems similar to some specimens that I've seen! There are crystals on the specimen, but one needs a microscope to see them well. On the side opposite the crystals there is a sizable crust of massive Kammererite, again with the red-violet coloration. There seems to be a small amount of a colorless mineral covering part of the crystalline crust-- it may be quartz. There is also evidence of a few veins of the mineral running through the host rock.
