JC6805.  A view with the bottom of the specimen on the table surface.  The large crystal on top is visible with the termination pointed towards the camera.  
JC6805.  Another view, with the large hubnerite lying flat on the top a little more visible.  
JC6805.   In this shot I turned the specimen sideways to show the edge of the top crystal, and the large crystal on the left side is visible edge on.

JC6805.  A vertical view looking down on the specimen showing the large hubnerite on the top. 
JC6805.  In this shot I angled the specimen so the large crystal on the left side is more obvious.  The large crystal lying flat on the top of the specimen can be clearly seen on the very top back.  Note the many internal red reflections.
