got a few small polyhedroids as part of an estate.  One of them became cabs as they were essentially black.  Then there was this one

That's awesome - a real head scratcher! Makes you question the theory that they formed in the spaces between large crystals.

Great specimen! Hope to add one of these to my shelf someday.

I also have  6 pounder that I haven't got the guts to cut into yet.  These are all from the original find in the 70's.  These were found in the 70's the State of Bahia, Brazil
