This specimen is an excellent extended crystal of pyrrhotite, with no matrix present. There is a large central tabular crystal, and smaller tabular crystals are stacked in "books" on either side. This is an extremely aesthetic little specimen. There are also a couple of tiny quartz crystals growing on the edges of the pyrrhotite. There is no damage to this specimen.
