Specimen of harmotome from a nowadays inactive Finnish lead mine: Korsnäs. On a matrix covered by very brilliant and well defined fluorapophyllite-(K) crystals with a greenish yellow color, we can observe some groups of aesthetic harmotome crystals, well faceted and interpenetrated among them. They show a pearly luster. Nowadays, these specimens are difficult to get.
