This thumbnail specimen consists mostly of jordanite, at least on the surface. It is a rather attractive lead-gray mineral with a high metallic luster. It appears to have a nearly botryoidal habit, although this may be a fracture pattern or even a pseudomorph, as this specimen also contains other minerals, at least one of which is definately in a botryoidal habit. Except for a vein of colorless calcite, I have not identified any of the other minerals, which include a dull green botryoidal crust, a sparkly brown crust, a patch that looks like a metal sulfide, and some tiny black metallic crystals that I suspect are more jordanite, although they are too tiny for me to be sure.
