The specimen was originally labelled as Bismutohauchecornite, but I am more inclined to call it Arsenohauchecornite based upon the brassy color and Bismutohauchecornite has not been reported from the Vermillion mine. The specimen sawed flat on two sides indicating it was probably worked on.

Lemon yellow, earthy masses of Avogadrite in a vial. The masses are around 1cm. Avogadrite is named after Amedeo Carlo Avogadro(1776 – 1856) an Italian physicist who determined the molecular theory that the number of molecules per mole of substance is exactly 6.02214076×10^23. It is otherwise known as "Avogadro constant". It is used to this day in chemical reactions. I use it all the time when I make pizza.
Avogadrite is a three locality mineral.
