A black micro-crystalline rock hosts several nice transparent deep red realgar crystals, plus several thin orange crusts. It may be that only the surface is orange and translucent, as a loupe shows that this crust still has crystal form with hints of red transparency. The largest crystals measure more than 14mm long, and are clean and striated, although most of the terminations are missing.
