This specimen is a piece of quartz intergrown with bismuthinite crystals. Only a portion of the spray of bismuthinite has been exposed, but several points suggest that they are the tips of more crystals originating from the same spot. Some of the bismuthinite has a gold or irridescent tarnish, but some freshly exposed crystals are silver in color with a vitreous luster.
