Intergrown crystal groups of rare Volkovskite. This recent find of Volkovskite set the world standard for the species. They were found as a biproduct of mining for potash, and because the Volkovskite damages mine machinery, the area where it was found is now avoided and it is unclear if anymore will be recovered.
