While mostly pyrite by weight, this specimen displays a fair amount of acicular jamesonite crystals. For the most part, they are tarnished an irridescent blue and are very nice looking. With the aid of a loupe, it is apparent that there is more silvery jamesonite surrounding the blue, there is irridescence in nearly every color of the rainbow, and indeed there are many tiny blue jamesonite crystals scattered over the specimen. The pyrite is brassy in color, and is also host to a few white quartz crystals. There is a bit of putty ("mineral tack") that I can't remove from the bottom, and I am sure that there was a great deal more jamesonite present when the specimen was first mined. It is quite brittle, and I am certain that much of it has broken off.
