Ex Jim Johnston collection, with label. There are some areas of incomplete growth (contacts , and probably one cleave) along some edges and one termination.  This is a noteworthy crystal in both size and rarity from this old Australian location, rarely are wolframite crystals seen in this size from anywhere in Australia.
