A few very thin crusts of Native Selenium rest on the pyrite base of this hand specimen. These crusts are very thin and show no evidence of visible crystals. They have a dull, dark violet color and a dull matte luster, and coat a few areas of the base. The pyrite base shows rather bad crystal form, and appears to contain some quartz, also.
