This small hand specimen consists of a chunk of massive Bornite that is intermixed with at least 2 other metallic sulfides. The Bornite that is visble has been well oxidized so that its deep blue-violet iridescent color is its most significant aspect. It has the obligatory metallic luster and is accompanied by a significant amount of chalcopyrite and some pyrite. The Bornite makes up the bulk of the specimen's mass, however.
