This small hand specimen consists of a thin quartzite crust on which rest several Enargite crystals. These crystals reach dimensions of 0.4 x 0.4 x 0.2" (1.1 x 1.0 x 0.6 cm) and are in very good condition, showing little fresh damage. Their orthorhombic, pseudo-hexagonal tabular form is moderately good, as its prism edges and faces are not well-defined. All have a deep, nearly black coloration and a bright submetallic luster, but are mostly coated with a thin crust of what appears to be chalcopyrite, given its deep golden coloration, metallic luster, and colorful iridescence. A few pyrite or chalcopyrite crystals are also on hand.
