Picture of the Day - My Botryoidal Orpiment

This is the latest addition to my collection - botryoidal orpiment with barite recently purchased at Quartzsite for one-third its $92 price tag... my splurge for 2012.
This specimen comes from Paloma Mine, Castrovirreina Province, Huancavelica Department, Peru.
