This cute little specimen consists of crude crystals of acanthite that are covered with a thin layer of microcrystalline chalcopyrite. The overall effect is that the acanthite crystals have a shimmering golden-bronze appearance that is quite appealing. There are also a few tiny rhombohedrons of calcite scattered about the base of the specimen. The only damage to this specimen is the tip of one of the crystals has been cleaved. This specimen is firmly glued to a clear acrylic base.
