I don't know if the specimen is waterworn, and I can't explain the natural smooth surface. But is an unusual specimen, heavy and rare. It is one of the largest arsenic specimens I have seen come across my desk. Quite unique! There is a note on one of the older labels stating "extra good specimen, from my own collection". I assume the recipient was Bill Roberts, but I am not sure who made that statement, but I am sure is is true, even today.
