Bright orange colored Dadchiardite which is mostly massive with a few crystal faces which have an almost metallic luster. Usually the species is clear to white in color, but specimens from the Campitello di Fassa area are ofren bright orange.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: Essentially massive material. One small piece is loose and wiggly. However, I pulled on it pretty hard and could not pull it loose.
