The two most common arsenic sulfide minerals, orpiment and realgar, are inter grown in this specimen from Shimen, Hunan, China. One of the earliest used pigments in art, its toxicity and instability has limited its use. Highly toxic when ingested; handle with caution.

Miniature specimen: About 2.0" x 1.2" x 1.2" (50mm x 30mm x 30mm)
