This rather odd hand specimen consists of small bits of massive Bismuth and crystalline bismuthinite and molybdenite that are trapped in a quartz matrix. The Bismuth is rather easy to see, as it has a rather bright silvery-gray color and a bright metallic luster- the other minerals are somewhat difficult to discern from each other, as their darker gray colors and duller metallic lusters are similar.
