A larger, this plate of amphibole crystals with six or so, sharp, well formed betafite crystals. The betafite are clearly visible compared to the amphibole crystals due to the reddish coloration, contrasting with the black. We don't often see betafite crystals on matrix like this! Usually, they are loose crystals weathered out of calcite. Displays well.
