This magnificent specimen is filthy rich in Edoylerite and they are "large", almost 1mm in some cases. There are two pockets of them on each end of the large vug. The greenish yellow areas are Edgarbaileyite, which is also very nice. Sprinkled about inside that large vug are scattered Edoylerite crystals. It is also rich in native Mercury and of course all the red is Cinnabar. Great specimen.

It will be sealed in a plastic container and be delivered by ground only because of the Mercury.
