Nice combination specimen consisting of metallic steel-black tetrahedrite crystals to 0.8 cm on a quartz – sphalerite matrix. The tetrahedrites are overgrown with white opaque prismatic drusy calcites, with a few drusy quartz crystals also present. A band of small brassy cubic pyrite crystals along one side of the specimen nicely complements this aesthetic mineral combo.
